What Is Baby Alpaca Fiber?
Baby Alpaca is an exceptionally fine, incredibly soft, lightweight, durable, hypoallergenic fiber which comes from the back of the adult alpaca, the only part that does not get contaminated by dirt (grass, soil…). Alpaca are gently shorn by hand and only once a year during the warmer season. Baby alpaca does not come from newborn, baby alpaca is just a kind of grading of how fine the fiber is (21.5micron).
Baby Alpaca is up to seven times warmer than the common sheep’s wool because the single fiber works as thermal insulation. This wool is cozy but also breathable for warmer weather thanks to the air pockets that are only found in alpaca fibers
