Llamas Visit Schoolhouse

Category: All Category: Lessons

We were pleasantly surprised when our one of our vendors stopped by with two of the llamas that grow the fiber used in our llama fiber blankets and rugs.   We invited everyone in for a proper showroom visit with company founder and owner Brian Faherty.

Our exclusive line of warm, luxurious throw blankets made of undyed llama fibers and line of woven llama rugs are made from Pacific Northwest grown llama yarn.   Each rug and throw is hand-woven by weavers in the US and Canada.

Llamas are native to the South American Andes of Peru, Bolivia & Chile.  Introduced to North America in the late 1800s, llamas are one of the oldest domesticated animals in America.    Llama yarn is not technically considered a wool because of its more hair like cellular composition.  The unique hair like structure accounts for the warm insulating quality as well as contributing to its tensile strength and durability.  Llama fiber is remarkably light and warm.  Our llama yarn is undyed and unbleached celebrating the natural color variation of the animals.
