Most knitters know the delicious, soft alpaca wool - but do you know its "relative" the Bolivian lama? The baby lama wool has fibers at least as soft as fine alpaca wool - why it is also called the cashmere of the Andes mountains.

The thin, incredibly soft fiber is the result of a process where the fine, thin under fur is separated from the coarse coat. Thus one of the finest fibers in the world is obtained - both softer and better insulating than the classic alpaca fibers.

In Llama Silk from Järbo Yarn, the baby lama wool is blended with mulberry silk, giving an incredibly beautiful and soft yarn, nothing less than amazing to work with. In addition, it is both warm and gentle to the environment. It doesn't get much better than that!

Please note that the yarn must be wound up before use.

This is my first Hobbi purchase and I am delighted with it. Ordering was straightforward and I was given great advice from the friendly staff at Hobbi on how much yarn I needed to order for my project. . As a novice knitter good advice is so helpful and encouraging. This yarn is incredibly soft and silky but I have found it easy to work with and the recommended needles are not too small which as a new knitter is a bonus. The colour range is gorgeous but I chose the Copper Brown. It was just as it appeared on the website so no disappointment there. I love the feel and look of yarns as much as the knitting of them! It arrived very quickly so altogether a very good first purchase from Hobbii.
