The baby llama, composed of very fine fibers, is as soft as cashmere, but is warmer, more lightweight and durable!
The llama is a domesticated South American mammal from the Camelidae family, of the Lama genus.
For many years the llama has been considered a beast of burden because of its thick coat and the complexity of obtaining its yarn. Thanks to modern technology and methods for cleaning and unraveling wool, a high quality of llama fiber is obtained for the fabric.
Baby llama wool from Caserita is superior in quality to baby alpaca due to its texture free of any coarseness and soft to the touch, making it an excellent option for knitting by hand.
