SURISILK FLUFF: Approximately 50g/328 yards 75/25 baby Suri alpaca/silk. This is a 1-ply heavy laceweight yarn.

These were kettle-dyed with washes of red, fuchsia, coppery brown and navy blue with the yarn crowded in the pot so it’s mottled and variegated (though not space-dyed). Finally, they were glazed in a big twist with a dark blue-black wash. I used the same colours as Bluebeard at Night but a totally different method. Note that these hanks share the same colours but that they are all slightly different so you may want to alternate hanks if used together. Different batches vary slightly as does each hank within a batch you may want to alternate hanks if using more than one and a more uniform fabric is desired.

Floof, fluff, fuzz - I don’t think there is anything much lighter and softer! Suri alpaca at its loveliest, blended with just enough silk to elevate it to the next level. Use this held together with another base for a fuzzy halo or by itself as a laceweight or even thicker fluffy, unimaginably soft fabric. These do not glow quite like mohair but the softness is unmatched. It's a luxurious blend and a great alternative to KidMoSilk if you don’t play well with mohair.

The texture of this base doesn't allow for distinct speckling, so colourways are more mottled or variegated. Also, it does not gain much size with blocking so please keep that in mind when planning your project. Be gentle when caking.

For a long, gorgeous life gently hand wash your garment in tepid water, shape a little while wet and lay flat to dry.
