LAMA is a soft, rustic and single ply Aran weight yarn consisting of 50% Lama wool and 50% Peruvian Highland wool with a huge choice of beautiful colours.
The colors available in Lama are beautifully composed of natural (undyed), heather and colored tones, custom made for CaMaRose.
This yarn is absolutely beautiful as it looks a little rustic but is incredibly soft. It's a great solid yarn!
Lama wool's fibers are an exclusive natural product, lanolin-free, lightweight and strong.
The hollow structure of the fibers provides an exceptionally good insulating ability, which is why llama wool is considerably warmer than ordinary sheep wool.
The yarn's rustic look, high insulating ability and strength make LAMAULD very suitable for classic Nordic sweaters and cardigans, outerwear and blankets.
The spinning of the yarn means that LAMAULD only reveals itself completely when knitted and blocked.
A knitted and washed swatch is therefore highly recommended to get the full impression of the yarn's properties, expression and softness. Lama wool naturally has very different fiber lengths which gives excess fibers in the working process. The majority of these fibers are flushed out at the first wash, making the result even softer.
LAMAULD from CaMaRose is produced in Peru with regard to the environment, animal welfare, the local farmers and workers.
The manufacturer is oeko-tex certified on all its wool products and uses solar energy in production. High quality requirements as well as consideration for the environment, animals and people in the production are the basis for the spinning industry's cooperation with CaMaRose since 2010.
