Well Folks...I FINALLY finished my sweater. Knit of yarn from my own llamas...this is a project that is really personal. Now all I need is a nice cool evening so I can enjoy it!

I know you've heard all about the alpacas fiber...well let me be the one to tell you that llamas have fabulous fiber as well...sharing substantially the same qualities...with a substantially smaller investment in the animal.  Llama fiber is lovely as it is...but it can be overdyed for exciting color combinations that Mother Nature never considered when she made llamas.  Small custom orders for organic natural and hand dyed yarn may be placed with my own fiber business, "A Twist of a Tail".  We have 100% llama rovings available in every natural coloring imaginable!  sold by the ounce.  This fiber is gorgeous, soft and vegetable matter free.  All from our own Minnesota Minis!  $3.00 ounce.

Hand painted llama yarn, felted llama fiber dolls and knitted llama fiber hats and scarves are just a few of the items made from our llamas!

Clickity Sticks & Yarns is a Minneapolis based yarn shop owned by Tamara Del Sonno, that has been a tremendous resource for me...a treasure trove of materials, tools, patterns and expertise.
 Go visit, you won't be sorry
