This scarf is perfect for either men or women. It is soft and warm. I have combined some undyed suri alpaca yarn from our own herd with a fine lilac cotton, weaving it into a black wool warp. It is both soft and elegant, adding a touch of style to your winter outfit.
Due to the fragile nature of the suri fibre, I send the fleeces to a local mill, who card, wash and spin it for me.
Suri is the softest of alpaca fibres. it’s a little warmer than wool, so even though this scarf is light, you will feel extra cosy on those cool days and chilly nights.
Alpaca fibre is resilient will keep its shape and softness for years.
Should you need to wash it, do so by hand only, squeezing out excess water by folding it in a towel and pressing down. Do not wring. Dry laid out flat. Not to be tumble dried. Iron with a cool iron, protecting it with a cotton or linen tea towel.
