Llama Fiber, Fiber Batt, ready for Spinning, Felting, Needle Felting, Nuno Felting and Baby Photo Props, hand dyed in shades of Peach.
Approx. 4 oz.
This luxurious llama batting comes straight from Checkers, one of our main herd sires on our Golden Browne Llamas Ranch. Checkers is a multi colored appaloosa llama with grey and taupe undertones and various shades of brown spots so when his fiber is processed into batting or pencil roving the colors blend together to make this rich gray, taupe color with a slight brownish tint. His fiber is very soft and lofty because of his Champion line genetics and because of his excellent nutrition and environment.
Checkers is famous in the llama community for having won so many top awards in performance. He is a Grand Champion many times over. He was also in the internationally famous Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, CA in January 2007, the first time ever in 118 years for llamas to be asked to be in this prestigious parade.
I have hand spun his fiber into beautiful single ply and double ply yarns as well as used it in felting projects. It makes great baby photo props too. See above photos with coordinating colors of Cotswold Wool Locks in shades of avocado. The Cotswold wool locks are not included in this listing. This listing is for 4 oz. of llama fiber.
Photo in this listing shows how this batt coordinates with the Peach Cotswold wool locks.

This llama fiber is great to coordinate with my other Cotswold Wool Locks:

I have hand dyed this llama fiber using Jacquard Acid Dyes and made these gorgeous shades of avocado olive green colors.
If you would like me to blend this fiber with other fibers I have available to make you a custom fiber art batt, please convo me and we will work out the details.
Llama fiber is even warmer than wool because of its hollow nature, so whatever you make with this wonderful llama roving will keep you nice and toasty on those cold fall and winter days and even on into spring. This batting is processed ready to spin or use in a felting project.
I do my best to take accurate pictures. Please keep in mind that colors will vary slightly monitor to monitor.
Care: After spinning into yarn to set the twist the yarn can be hand washed in cool water with a mild soap being careful not to agitate it or it can felt! You can run the yarn through the spin cycle in your washing machine to get the excess water out and then hang the skein to dry slightly weighted while setting the twist. Garments made from llama yarn should be hand washed in cool water with mild soap being careful not to agitate it so it won’t felt. Either spin the excess water out in the washing machine or roll in a towel. Then reshape and lay flat to dry.

Some people may wonder why my shipping and handling might be a little higher than what others charge to ship. I do charge for shipping (actual postage) and a small handling fee. (Handling includes the cost of any packaging and tape, the cost of paper and printing of the description sheet and packing slip, time and gas to and from the post office since I live in the country.) I have very very low margins on the items I sell in my shop so I have to break even on the shipping and handling costs or I cannot continue to do business on Etsy. I value my time and talents, therefore, I really appreciate the people that purchase products from me that also value my time, talents and costs of being able to continue to do business on Etsy.
Etsy automatically adds 9% sales tax on orders purchased by California Residents.

I list a shipping and handling fee on each item. Please note : I charge actual postage plus packing materials and a small handling fee for my time and gas to the post office so I can break even on my shipping costs. U.S. postage increases every year. It is now very difficult to even break even on shipping and handling costs especially after Etsy fees and PayPal fees are taken out as well.
Handling fees include whatever preparation is needed including packaging materials and my time to prepare your package for shipping and getting it to the post office to be mailed. Even though we do live out in the country and have to take packages into town to mail, I ship promptly. I really appreciate the people that purchase products from me that also value my time and costs of being able to do business on Etsy.
I have had a few convos from some potential customers that complain that my shipping and handling costs are higher than others on Etsy. If you don't feel comfortable paying me for my shipping and handling costs please find another place to purchase your items from. I would like for this to be a win win transaction for both of us. By the time Etsy and PayPal take their % out of each transaction there must be enough left for me to make it worth my while to continue to do business on Etsy. Thank you again for coming to my shop and for your understanding.
