Our handspun llama comes from a collective in Bolivia, helping the members to earn a living in a sustainable and culturally cohesive manner. Each skein might be spun by a different collective member, from more than one animal's fiber, so there can be a great variation in color and yarn thickness (see photos above) as well as possibly containing bits of vegetable matter. We like this! it's part of the charm. Generally there is approximately 175 yards per ball, but this varies quite a bit. Hats are our favorite thing to knit with this special yarn. It's textured, soft but still very rustic. The natural undyed color varies from light cocoa to deep chocolate.
