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!

These are small skeins. Make sure you account for the yardage. I plan on making a larger scarf/wrap with it. It feels soft and smooth. It is a little thicker yard than I thought it would be and that is a very good thing. I think it is strong enough to have 36-40 inches in width and long enough to drape over both shoulders and have one end waist length in front and back. This will allow the most different ways to wear it.
