Nuraxi Llama
Llama fleece is one of the most sustainable and low-impact products on earth. It has extensive benefits for the farmers and artisans of the Andes, conscientious consumers, and the planet as a whole.

On the Altiplano (high plain) llama fleece has been shorn by native Andeans annually, and used in various textiles, for thousands of years with no harm to the animals. The llama is an inherent part of the ecology of this region and, as they graze on native plants, they aid in restoring the natural habitat after centuries of overgrazing by sheep.

Llama wool is naturally durable, hypoallergenic and antimicrobial. It contains no lanolin and no chemical agents are used in processing. The natural fiber comes in many different colors ranging from white or grey to reddish-brown, brown, dark brown and black. Native Andeans are now seeing new opportunities, restoring a strong sense of pride in producing high-quality products that celebrate and reclaim part of their culture in an enduring, traditional and environmentally friendly way. Llamas are once again providing the basis for a way of life and a viable, sustainable economy.
