The term baby alpaca does not imply that the used fibre stems from little alpaca babies. It is rather a quality feature and characterizes the fineness of the fiber. Adult animals which have such a fibre quality are the most precious animals.
Get inspired by our baby alpaca yarn: wearing comfort, optical properties as well as the silky sheen and technical advantages such as moisture regulation speak for themselves. Because: alpaca is a so-called intellinget fiber. As hollow fibre it is temperature-compensating and can be processed in a much thinner quality than sheep wool or other natural fibers. Based on this unique temperature-compensation it can llikewise be worn in winter as in summer. It does not itch nor crease and is apt for delicate and sensitive skin. Since alpaca wool does hardly contain any lanoline (wool fat) it is particularly apt for allergics. Thanks to its smooth fibre texture it is hardly prone to pilling of felting.
