Llama-Rama!

  • A blend of half llama & half Romney wool creates a yarn with lovely drape and color plus the elasticity and memory of wool. Great yarn for knitting, crochet or weaving. The rich heathered colors are created by dyeing some of the wool fleece and blending before spinning. No dyelots, all same color name yarn will match.

    Llama is a camalid fiber, actually more like hair than sheep wool which has crimp. Llamas natural colors are different than sheep and we love the ecru, brown and bittersweet brown in this yarn which are not dyed at all. The strong and drapey nature of this yarn lend itself to both crochet and weaving as well as knitting.
