Llama belong to the camelid family, and are closely related to Alpaca. This fibre comes from their undercoat, and is approximately 20-21 microns. It has a slight lustre, but be sure not add too much twist to your yarn or you will end up with something that feels like string. The finished yarn has good drape, but little elasticity.
This fibre is hand dyed in small batches, where more than one braid is available they will have been dyed at the same time, using the same dye stock, but my dyeing technique produces braids with subtle variations.
These fibres have been dyed to exhaust using acid dyes, and then rinsed using hot water and detergent. I recommend you hand wash your spun yarn in warm water, using a mild pH neutral detergent. The no-rinse wool washes seems to be the most prone to causing bleeding so are best avoided.
