We also spin the hair of the miniature llamas from The Very Little Llama Farm and have hair available by the ounce for hand spinners. The miniature llama produces a very fine silky, lustrous fiber which spins by the handful like Angora. The fleece also has beautiful variegation and hand spinning without carding compliments this characteristic. In breeding the miniature, the stiff guard hair was accidentally bred out.
