The llama, a camelid living in the highlands of South America, has always been an important resource for the inhabitants of these areas since the time of the Inca Empire. The llama fibre has been considered until very recently an ordinary fibre of little value, mainly used for cordage and mats, but thanks to the constantly renewing technologies and machines used for the separation of the thinnest fibres from the coarsest ones, it is today used for the production of clothing and furnishing items of great value.
By this selection, called dehairing, we obtain the Baby Llama, a luxury fibre that can reach a fineness of 19-23 microns. The main features are the softness, lightness and high thermal capacity. Like the alpaca, the llama fibre comes in an array of natural shades from white to brown to black.
