Suri alpaca. Suri and huacaya are not really separate breeds but in fact indicate different genetic fleece phenotypes. When crossbreeding the suri gene is dominant and the huacaya gene recessive. The suri's fleece falls close to the body, moves freely, and gives the animal a lustrous, flat-sided appearance. Suri alpaca fiber is made into coats or jackets that exhibit a warm, luxurious luster.
