Llama wool

composed of straight, somewhat stiff, spun doghair, and from fine, soft-curled downy hair. Procured from the llama, a ruminant of the camel family, which can grow to a height of 160 cm and lives in the mountain regions of South America. Shearing is performed only partially once every two years to ensure the animal's protection against the harsh conditions of the mountains; its yield is 2 kg - 4 kg. Used to produce high-quality pile fabrics for coats and lightweight blankets.
