Breezy Ridge Alpacas

It is my privilege and passion to be able to work with the beautiful and elegant suri alpaca and the wonderful natural fiber they produce. The alpacas are not harmed in any way and sheared only once a year. They are loved and cared for with quality hay and daily attention.

The fiber of the suri alpaca is compared to fine cashmere with the luster of silk. Suri fiber is used for high fashion fabric for designer clothing, luxury apparel, coats, sweaters and specialty interior fabrics and textiles. Suri alpaca is an ancient fiber prized for a combination of elegant traits: Luster, drape, softness, multiple natural colors, ease of dyeing and versatility. Both knitting and weaving can be used to produce luxury products.

I have a herd of suri alpacas. I use the fiber they produce each year and turn it into wearable fashions. I also hand spin the suri locks into yarn and make roving for spinners as well as do all my own dying.

Description

Hand Dyed Red Alpaca Knit Scarf is a Must Have this fall and winter! I knit this scarf in a beautiful lace design from Suri alpaca lace weight yarn from our alpaca that we raise and shear here on the farm. After shearing I send the fleece to a mill to be made into lace weight yarn so I can then knit this lovely lace scarf. This is a beautiful shade of red, hand dyed using gentle dyes and rinsed well.

Suri alpaca has the softness of cashmere, luster of silk, warmth and featherweight of goose down and durability of wool. Suri alpaca comes in multiple natural colors as well as ease of dyeing. Few other natural fibers posses all these attributes, making it highly sought after throughout the world.

I have always loved animals, so after the kids left home I found the love of the the suri alpaca. I care for the alpacas and my fur kids (dogs) on a daily basis. I work with the alpacas in such a way as to make them as gentle as possible. I truly love working with the animals and the fiber they produce.

You will find many items that I create from the lovely suri alpaca they produce. I gently hand wash the fiber before I make my items. I then wash again when finished to be sure they are fresh and clean using gentle wool wash.
