The Fibre Co.’s first brushed yarn is processed in a mill in Southern Peru, home of the alpaca. Cirro is a sport/DK 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.
