  • Eco Llama is a precious fingering-weight de-haired baby llama yarn with incredible softness. So, what you're getting is the ultra soft undercoat of the llama, with all of the coarser guard hairs from the top coat removed.

    This yarn is unspoilt by any dyes and available in the naturally gorgeous colours of the llama!

    You'll find fabric made with this yarn is smooth, drapey, luxuriously soft, with a very subtle baby halo. The yarn is durable despite its softness, and lighter and warmer than cashmere, since llama fibre is hollow.

    And baby llama yarn is lanolin free and naturally resistant to stains and pilling.

    The impact of the Llama trade has been very important for the development of the region. Bolivia has the largest Llama population in the world (2.2 million). Llama Fibres have not been used extensively until recently thanks to a new technology developed by the spinner in Bolivia. This process is based on the same principles used for dehairing Cashmere and Camel hairs to achieve the separation between coarse hairs and the fine hairs (de-haired baby llama). So by purchasing this yarn, you're helping to bolster the Bolivian artisanal economy.

    Typically Illimani - this is another luxury fiber that just has to be experienced!

    Made in Bolivia.  Illimani works with international aid organisations to help artisans in Peru and Bolivia.
