Poster: "Efenwealt Wystle" <efen@hotmail.com>

I have recently obtained a bag of Llama hair/wool from a friend (which 
could become a continuous free source if I were interested).  If I make 
something from this, it might be really cool if I could document it. I 
was wondering if anyone has stumbled upon period, EUROPEAN accounts of 
Llamas and/or stuff made from their hair. Please don't message me back 
"Well, spanish conquistadors travelled to south America, so they MUST 
have seen Llamas and deduced people made stuff with their hair." Maybe 
some Conquistador's journals might actually say something about these 
strange beasts. If anyone could point me in a good direction, I would 
really appreciate it. Did any period explorers make it to the Andes? or 
did any Atlantic Coastal Native tribes keep Llamas?

And for those of you who remember my Aussie friend Bill:

who really prefers sheep to llamas...
