Suri Alpaca fleece has the lustrous, penciled fiber that hangs down in "dreadlocks", giving the suri alpaca an entirely different appearance. Fibers of both types are considered luxury fibers in the textile trade because of their unique qualities.
Suri alpaca. Suri and huacaya are not really separate breeds but in fact indicate different genetic fleece phenotypes. When crossbreeding the suri gene is dominant and the huacaya gene recessive. The suri's fleece falls close to the body, moves freely, and gives the animal a lustrous, flat-sided appearance. Suri alpaca fiber is made into coats or jackets that exhibit a warm, luxurious luster.
