texas yarn

Hi, I'm looking for alpaca yarn from llamas in texas. I've heard that
this probably exists (esp. in the hill country) but I'm having a hard
time finding out where to get some. Does anyone know? thanks andy

are you looking for alpaca yarn or yarn from llamas? they're different animals. the *only* way you are going to get either American alpaca or llama yarn is to buy it directly from someone raising the animals. all commercial alpaca is imported from South America. i've never seen commercially available llama yarn anywhere. i would suggest Googling alpaca or llama breeders/farms in TX & call whoever pops up to see if they sell yarn. good luck. lee

I've purchased a few skeins of alpaca yarn from these folks (

They do not have yarn to purchase on their web site, but maybe you could contact them by phone.OK, I went looking for a label from the one skein I have left. The yarn was spun by Royal Fiber Spinnery in Ruidoso, NM. This is their web site:

. There is a link on their web site for an online store. The only llama yarn I've seen is some that a woman in our fiber arts group has had. She has her own llamas and spins her own yarn.
