The alpaca fiber is a very precious fiber. In fact there are no negative characteristics by the alpaca fleece. Mother Nature has developed an ideal fiber and placed it on the gentle alpaca. A Spaniard Bernabe Cobo told us about the alpaca fibers in his book called “History of the New World (1653)”: „Alpaca,un càlido don de Dios a los Hombres“ (Alpaca is a gift of the warmth from God to people).

Baby Alpaca is softer and gentler as Alpaca and it feels very comfortable on the skin. It is an ideal yarn for very sensitive skin! No itching! The softness of the Baby Alpaca is resulting from the shearing of the alpaca cubs and not the adult animals.

This yarn is suited perfectly for the knitting of the overclothes such as pullover, cardigans, pullunder and also due to the pleasant wearing characteristic you can wear clothes with a high skin contact such as knitted scarves and caps.

Our Baby Alpaca wool is a voluminous hairy yarn which is evenly knitted and hardly splits. The knitted article holds its form and almost doesn’t pill. The alpaca wool becomes softer and fluffier after the washing and the knitting pattern is even better recognized.
