When I groomed llamas we used mane & tail diluted in water to break up Top Llama Skull Remember Why You Started Halloween Shirt any knots. But honestly, their fibre is so soft and silky if they’ve been well-fed and well-groomed it just looks like that. Llamas are amazing. Is it normal for them to have their bodies clipped but not the neck? I love talking about llamas! The main difference between a llama and alpaca fibre is that llamas have guard hairs. The process isn’t too difficult as the hairs are longer, so they can be plucked out of the shorn fibre easily. The blanket is the most valuable fibre (long-staple, clean, fewer guard hairs), while the neck has more guard hairs and shorter fibre.

Most owners find it cost-effective to the only shear and Top Llama Skull Remember Why You Started Halloween Shirt process the blanket. The animals have sensitive necks and it really extends the shearing process for no additional benefit. Cool, thanks. Not ever having processed llama neck fibre I didn’t realise it would have more guard hairs there. Makes sense. I wonder if they’d shear the neck in warm climates..? Alpacas have their legs shorn too to keep them cool and comfortable, and that fibre is worthless.
