NASCO offers a variety of Suri alpaca fiber for sale for the wholesale community. A fresh clip of Suri fiber comes in each year in September, and it is then graded, sorted, a portion is washed, and all is offered for sale.
We sell baled, washed fiber for the commercial market, and we sell hand picked, individual fleeces to retail stores dedicated to the handspinning community. Additionally, under the Salt River Mills label, we offer 2 oz bumps of roving in a variety of natural colors, and we offer fine Suri and Suri blended yarns in both dyed and natural colors.

Grade 2 (20-22.99 microns)
Grade 3 (23-25.99 microns)
Grade 4 (26-28.99 microns)
Grade 5 (29-31.99 microns)
Grade 6 (32 microns and above)
