What Is “Pure” Alpaca Content?

What is meant when we say our alpaca garments are made with “Pure” Baby Alpaca or Royal Alpaca Fiber?

“Pure” means that 100% of the fiber used in making the garment is Baby Alpaca Fiber. Synthetic fibers such as acrylic or rayon are never used.


Baby Alpaca and Royal Alpaca are Fiber Classifications

Alpaca fiber is extremely soft.  However, “Baby Alpaca Fiber” and “Royal Alpaca Fiber” is the most luxurious, softest and finest fiber derived from alpacas.  It does not come from young baby alpacas, but is a classification of alpaca fiber.  Experts sort the shorn fiber into different fiber classifications.  Fibers must meet specific standards to be classified as Royal Alpaca and Baby Alpaca.


Why Do We Use Pure Baby Alpaca and Royal Alpaca Fiber? 

When you wear a garment made with Baby Alpaca Fiber or Royal Alpaca Fiber, you can feel the difference in the softness as compared with one made from other fiber classifications, such as “super fine”.  Super Fine alpaca fiber tends to be prickly.  Mt. Caesar Alpacas never uses Super Fine alpaca fiber in its products.


Alpaca Fiber Characteristics

Alpaca fiber has unique fiber characteristics.  It is several times warmer than wool or any other natural or man-made fiber.  Alpaca fiber has a unique hollow core.  This hollow core traps pockets of air which act as insulation against cold and heat.  This is why unlike other fibers, alpaca provides perfect temperature control.  You’ll be warm wearing our alpaca sweaters and accessories, but never hot.

The hollow core also provides moisture-wicking characteristics.  Because of this, our socks and active wear will keep you dry and our socks will keep your feet safe from blisters.

Unlike synthetic fibers, Alpaca fiber is extremely durable, and it is another reason why we do not use synthetic fibers in our garments. It is a common misconception that synthetic fibers make sweaters and other garments more durable. In fact, the opposite is true. Synthetic fibers are less durable than alpaca fiber. Synthetic fibers, and natural fibers like wool, also cause “pilling”, or the forming of little balls of fiber on the textiles.  Pure alpaca garments do not pill.

Our decades of expertise in raising alpacas and working with their precious fiber goes into every product we make.
