    Default Llama hair

    My neighbor raises llamas and we live in Wyoming. The neighbors were having a moving sale and getting rid of bags of hair off of the llamas. A buyer came and bought a bag of the hair and said he is going to use it to insulate his beehive in the winter. After the neighbor told me this, I got a bag, but have no idea how to use it or if it is a good idea. Any opinions or suggestions on this?

    spin it to thread then weave a blanket? Or put it in bags that can wrap around the hives. My neighboring beekeeper just uses leaf bags of autumn leaves.

    The most likely use would be in a quilt box. More on quilt boxes here:
