Llama Fur and Fiber

Llamas can have a wonderful, soft coat. Their fleece is sought after by men and women who create yarns and weave or knit products due to llama fiber’s soft and warm characteristics.

The quality of a llama’s fiber can vary widely from animal to animal.

Among the attributes of a fleece are:
How it will or will not crimp
Fineness of the fiber
Consistency of the fibers

When selecting a llama for its fleece, learn from the breeder how often that animal can be sheared in a year which will in turn indicate how much fiber that animal will produce.
