Soft, softer, Baby Llama! This loosely spun super extra wonderful soft snuggle yarn has been improved now. With the special combing technique used, this new version of Llama Soft is less prone to pilling because the sort fibres that cause this unpleasant effect, are filtered out. Llama Soft has only 20 Micron (this is the unit in which you measure the fineness of animal hair) and when you touch it, you will know why the yarn is refered to "Cashmere of the Andes". For your reference a very fine and soft Baby alpaca has 21/22 Micron.
According to research by the Owari Textile Technology Center in Japan, where Alpaca fibers where compared to Llama fibers, they found out that the inner diameter of Llama hair is bigger, which causes an even better insulation. Llamas belong to the same family of Camelids as Alpaca, but are much lower in number. They roam freely and are only gathered for shearing.
The shearing is implemented gently and carefully, not only to protect the animals but also for simple economic reason: The most precious, fine hair grows directly on the skin of the animal, in the undercoat. If you hurt the skin, you reduce the harvest of this precious fiber. “Our animals are our capital that we treat with love and respect”, is the statement of the Llama farmers.
Llama Soft is the perfect yarn for hats and scarves. It still remains a bit delicate due to the fine fibers and therefore is not so suitable for hard-wearing garments.
Tip: Don’t knit too loosely in order to enjoy your garment as long as possible.
