The Fibre Co.’s first brushed yarn is processed in a mill in Southern Peru, home of the alpaca. Cirro is a sport weight yarn that combines the long lustrous Suri alpaca fibre with Merino wool. The brushed effect is created by wrapping this blend around an organic cotton binder thread to achieve a light and airy yarn perfectly balanced for body and drape. Cirro creates a delightfully soft haloed fabric that is light as a feather and easily worn next to the skin. It also combines nicely held-double with several other yarns from The Fibre Co. including Acadia, Arranmore Light, Canopy Fingering, Cumbria Fingering, Luma and Meadow.
