.... that the fiber must be dehaired for processing?
.... that llama fiber doesn't felt or bleach easily?
.... that llama fiber contains no lanolin (the oil found in sheep’s wool),
so it is not greasy and is hypoallergenic
(people are only allergic to the lanolin)?
I bought some beautiful llama yarn at the Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool festival.

This was the last Christmas present I finished in the Thursday morning at 1:00 am. I made my design Basil for my teenage son, but without the tassels. It was also a great opportunity to try out Mirasol Miski yarn, 100 % baby lama. It's a very soft yarn and comes in gorgeous colors.
