I established my business in 1989, with the purchase of my first three Llamas. As a spinner and weaver, my interest has always been using the Llama fleece as a medium for these crafts. I also have Llama fibre and Gotland wool for sale, in a variety of colours.
Many of the Gotland fleeces are sent overseas, where they have proved very popular.
