Darn Good Yarn has the opportunity to offer you this beautiful line of llama wool yarn from the Andes Mountains in Chile. And by purchasing it, you are helping an aging population of Chilean farmers and their llamas!
Why should you love llama fiber? It is a hollow fiber, which makes it extremely strong and warm. Llama fiber is naturally antimicrobial, will not pill, it is washable, flame retardant, and durable.
Why should you love Royal Llama fibers particularly? Their llama fiber is 100% super-de-haired. What does that mean? They have found a way to mechanically separate the guard hairs and coarse fleece from the soft under coat fibers. Basically, that means that the process that they use makes the fiber especially soft and touchable, not scratchy like some other llama fiber you may have encountered!
The yarn is 50 gram skeins, sport weight with 163 yards! All fibers are hand shorn and sorted by color and quality by expert Aymara hands. This variety pack comes with the Light Rosillio, Dark Rosillo and Undefined Gray; you save 10% when you purchase all 3!
