Our fine alpaca quality has the cohesion of all the fibers: The softness of cashmere, the shininess of mohair, the silkiness of angora and the strength of merino wool.
WHAT IS BABY ALPACA?
We use Baby Alpaca, an exceptionally fine, incredible soft, lightweight, durable, hypoallergenic fiber which comes from the neck and underbelly of adult alpaca. Alpaca are gently shorn by hand and only once a year during the warmer season.
IS IT WARM?
Baby Alpaca is up to seven times warmer than the common sheep’s wool because the single fiber works as a thermal insulation. This wool is cozy but also breathable for warmer weather thanks to the air pockets that are ONLY found in alpaca fibers.
IS IT HYPOALLERGENIC?
Baby Alpaca is naturally free of lanolin and other oils found in sheep’s wool, making it hypoallergenic.
IS ALPACA ITCHY?
Baby Alpaca is naturally free of lanolin and other oils found in sheep’s wool, so it’s not itchy.
WILL MY GARMENT PILL?
Baby alpaca is far more elastic, softer and longer lasting than other materials. Baby Alpaca is far less likely to pill. It is a natural fiber that looks and feels luxurious.
ARE THE COLORS NATURAL?
Yes, most of the colors we use are natural, and carefully sorted by color after shearing. This fiber comes in range of more than twenty naturally gorgeous colors, from rich black to deep reddish browns and snowy white.
IS ALPACA SUSTAINABLE?
What’s more, it is also good for the planet while other luxurious materials, such as cashmere, are becoming environmentally catastrophic.
With one alpaca you can make up to five sweaters, while it takes four goats to produce sufficient cashmere for a single sweater.
DOES THIS HURT BABY ALPACAS?
Baby alpaca does not come from new born, baby alpaca is just a kind of grading of how fine the fibre is (21.5micron)
