Why we love it: Spun from domestic fiber, and blended with wool to enhance it's properties, this yarn is great for wearable, warm items without the bulk. Not to mention it has amazing drape, a soft hand, and the colors are deep.
Suri's are in the camelid family, like alpaca and vicuna) and produce a long, lustrous fiber without crimp, loft, or bulkiness. It also lacks elasticity (which is why it's often blended with a touch of wool).
