Llama fibre is a 'wonder' fibre, with so many advantages over wool and synthetic, that it is difficult to know where to begin. Soft, warm and oil-free ~ great for spinners, weavers and felters and craft. It comes in a wide range of natural colours.

Llama fibre is hollow and provides superior insulation on a warmth/weight comparison with other fibres, especially synthetics
Comfort and Appearance
Llama fibre has a fine diameter and low scale which give fabrics a naturally soft hand and luxurious feel and they move silently. The llamas produce fibre in an array of natural colors that are rich looking, all-natural, and won't fade. Basic neutral colors incorporated with traditional designs give garments a long fashion life and they coordinate well.
Llama fiber offers an attractive alternative to alpaca, sheep's wool or synthetics. This all natural fibre provides enduring protection for conditions ranging from cool to cold, wet, and nasty. Whether in the city or the country, inside or out, its comfort, good looks, and performance are remarkable.
The whole process from the llama being reared in natural surroundings, through fibre and yarn production, is sustainable and 'green'
