The fleece for this skein of llama yarn was shorn, washed, carded and spun by hand. The llama, Ashley, who provided her fleece lives happily among her friends at Creekside Llama Farm in upstate New York. She felt much better after this lofty, warm wool was removed lovingly by her owner.
I spun the yarn on a Kromski Minstrel wheel and I added touches of a coral merino wool. The other variations are completely natural to Ashley's fleece.
This yarn is unique, there is no other like it. It weighs 4 ounces and has about 198 yards. It is approximately DK weight and would make a beautiful hat, mittens or small scarf. You could use needles from 4 - 7 depending on how dense you want your item to be.
By the way, did you know that llama wool is 3 times warmer than traditional sheep's wool? And it is easier to wear since it is far less scratchy.
