Why Llama fiber - Llama fiber is extremely light but warm. It is a smooth fiber without the 'itchy' feel of some sheep's wool fabric. It is a great alternative for people who are uncomfortable with wool but want the warmth, water resistance and "cuddle factor" of a fine natural fabric.
Llamas do not have lanolin in their coats which grow from 3 to 6 inches a year. Each individual hair is a slightly wavy strand usually much finer than a human hair. It is closer to Angora rabbit fur in weight and warmth without the flying hairs. It is also a hollow tube which makes it sought after for making fishing ties as well as adding an insulation factor.

Our llamas are shorn once a year in the spring in a humane manner. They stand up for shearing which is more similar to clipping a poodle than shearing a sheep. We join with other llama ranches to sort through the fiber and send to best on to be made into socks and blankets. These commercially produced llama fiber items made from the fiber shorn yearly from our local llamas.
