My cousin in Oregon sent me 2 llama fleeces yesterday!! I found a farm nearby who spins and custom knits. I emailed them, asking about having my fleeces spun. I have no idea what it takes- these fleeces are VERY dirty- or how much it might cost, but I think it would be SO cool to have yarn made from these, and then be able to knit something for my cousin and send it back to her!! :happydance:

I remember researching this awhile ago because I was thinking about buying some unprocessed fleece. I found these places:

http://www.blackberry-ridge.com/

http://www.wildeyarns.com/index.htm

The first one is in Vermont but the second one is in PA. Maybe they can clean it up for you and then spin it to your requirements. Good luck! It looks like great fiber!
