Which is better merino wool or peruvian highland wool?

It depends on what you're looking for. Merino wool is incredibly soft, and has a nice light hand, but it tends to be fragile. It doesn't always wear well, and is prone to fuzzing and pilling. It's lovely when softness is the main consideration, like for a scarf or baby items. But make an active boy a sweater of it, and the thing will be all pills and holes in no time at all. Peruvian Highland sheep are a cross between Merino (for the softness) and Corriedale (for durability.) You get a wool that is stronger and more durable, without losing too much in softness. It's a good all purpose wool, but not butter-soft like the merino.

How is wool produced?

Fleece-bearing animals grow the raw material for wool on their skin -- much the same way that humans grow hair.

Fleece is shorn from the animal and allowed to dry. This does not hurt the animal that sometimes show relief at being freed from the huge and very heavy winter fleece. There are other methods of collecting fleece.

For example:

Here is what Cashmere.org says how cashmere wool is collected:

"The specialty animal hair fibers are collected during molting seasons when the animals naturally shed their hairs. Goats molt during a several-week period in spring. In China and Mongolia, the down is removed by hand with a coarse comb."

Without endorsement, you can read more, below, about how wool is produced from fleece, in this case sheep fleece.

How does a 9 volt battery catch steel wool on fire?

Electricity is energy.

Energy can be different things.

We have movement as an energy, kinetic energy that is.

Then there is, amongst others heat, as an energy.

Electricity must be in a circuit to work.

When putting the 9volt battery in the steel wool you make a circuit.

Then the electricity will flow through the steel wool.

When the electricity is not being used by anything (no light bulbs or anything), it is being converted to heat energy.

Steel wool burns easily, so the heat will easily ignite the steel wool.

You know about Alpaca wool but can you get Llama wool?

"We don't select our classic llamas for their fiber quality. All the characteristics of good fiber production (as well as many of the characteristics of good fiber for spinning) are directly opposed to what's ideal for keeping working llamas easily combed for weather protection without overheating ... and working performance llamas is what we raise and use. The South Americans had it absolutely right -- two kinds of llamas for two purposes. Because of our immersion in performance llamas, we also didn't start out using llama fiber at all. However, we are continually finding ourselves in the position of educating others. We knew how much misinformation from "experts" is peddled out there as "fact" in all facets of llamas, so we finally undertook learning about fiber use in order to avoid inadvertantly passing on similar misinformation about fiber (and yep, we quickly found that there's plenty of misinformation about fiber out there, too). Although we do save the more suitable combings from our own classic herd for outer-garment and nongarment use (it's quite possible to spin, although not as easy nor as satisfying), for next-to-the-skin projects, we use fiber from good-quality woolly and silky llamas and alpacas" from Lost Creek Llama Wool is a type of real fur that is shaved from and similar animals to a sheep == ==
