Llama Silk – Soft like cashmere!
Many knitters have discovered the lovely alpaca wool, but now it’s time for its unknown cousin to take a step into the limelight. With a fiber that’s just as soft and fine as the alpaca wool, the Bolivian llama really deserves your attention. It’s not for nothing they call it the cashmere of the Andes.
For over two decades, our producer have been refining the llama dehairing process. The result is one of the finest fibers in the world. Studies actually show that the llama fiber is both softer and has better insulation capacity than the wool of the alpaca.
In Llama Silk, the baby llama wool has been mixed with mulberry silk, which results in an incredibly soft knitting yarn that’s lovely to work with. Read more about the yarn and see all colours here on our website –>
