... and back to fun again!

unusual and enchanting with easy management.
As long as they have grass or hay and fresh water
you can leave llamas to graze and grace your land, and simply enjoy watching them:
or you can halter them and take them for a walk, put a picnic on
their backs, and... well see below!
light, strong, warm and very soft for spinning, weaving,
knitting. Llamas need not be sheared, however, if the fibre is not required as it stops
growing when not shorn...
In South America, llama fibre of 28 microns* and under is
are well under this measurement).

Visitors to RoseLand
Llamas come to buy llamas for many
but they all end up making the same comment - how relaxing and calming
it is to watch the llamas at rest and play.

Trekking offers excellent tourism

as well as a wonderful lifestyle. RoseLand Llamas
offer a full and comprehensive advice service with

Whilst I hope these pages
will give you a good sense of the satisfaction and great fun derived
from owning llamas, I can think of no better way to end this
page than by suggesting you leave the Roseland website for a
few minutes and explore the amazing work of
Terry Crowfoot to be found on her
website - www.llama-training.co.uk
I'm not sure who is more amazing, Terry or her llamas! Do
make sure you click on all her video clips, but then...
to return to Roseland to continue grazing our pages!
