Cirro is a sport weight yarn, processed in a mill in Southern Peru, 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.
Knitted alone, Cirro creates a delightfully soft, haloed fabric that is light as a feather and easily worn next to the skin. It also knits beautifully held double with several other yarns from The Fibre Co. including Acadia, Arranmore Light, Canopy Fingering, Cumbria Fingering, Luma and Meadow.
