100% Alpaca ( Baby Alpaca )
We only use Baby Alpaca, an exceptionally fine, incredible 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 new born, baby alpaca is just a kind of grading of how fine the fibre is (21.5micron).
Functional, beautiful and extremely stylish it is made from Alpaca fleece, the natural fiber harvested from the Alpaca. It can be light or heavy in weight depending on how it is spun. It is a soft, durable, luxurious and silky natural fiber. Whilst similar to sheep's wool, it is warmer, not prickly and has no lanolin, which makes it hypoallergenic. Alpaca are native to the high Andes mountains of South America, domesticated for centuries by the Inca of Peru their fleece was worn only by royalty. Soft like Cashmere but stronger than wool Alpaca wool is the connoisseurs’ choice – known for over six thousand years as the fiber of the Gods
