Guanaco Blend Tops
Guanaco Blend Fibre Tops
A unique IxCHeL rare breed adventure blend top!
This blend is so soft it can only be described as “orgasmic” 😉
Guanaco fibre is particularly prized for its soft, warm feel. The Guanaco's soft wool is valued second only to that of the Vicuña. The Guanaco is double-coated with coarse guard hairs and a soft undercoat, which is about 16-18 micron in diameter and comparable to the best cashmere. Only the super soft undercoat is used in this blend.
The Guanaco is an animal native to the arid, mountainous regions of South America. They are found in the altiplano of Peru, Bolivia and Chile.
This luxurious top is blended thoroughly so it is easy to draft and spin into a very fine yarn. Also suitable to felt with, using a base of prefelt, merino or Paj Silk for your Nuno felting creations.
