This Llama/Merino Wool Yarn is characteristically variegated, adding to its special nature and charm. Llama fiber is often called the “Cashmere of the Andes” because of its softness. The fiber structure is semi-hollow, like that of a polar bear. This structure allows the fiber to be extra warm without being bulky. The combination of llama and merino wool fibers creates a super soft, warm yarn for all of your winter knitting projects!
Notes on Lambspun yarns:
Each skein contains approximately 290 yards. Please note that the amount of color variegation varies from skein to skein. Color variegation in hand-dyed yarns is a result of the hand-dyeing process. It is possible to request more or less variegation. Be sure to purchase enough yarn to complete your project, as we cannot guarantee the availability of additional skeins of a single dye lot.
