Baby Alpaca is Simply a Classification of Alpaca Fiber.
What is meant when we say our alpaca sweaters, scarves, gloves and mittens are made with “Pure” Baby 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.
Why Pure Baby Alpaca Fiber?
Alpaca fiber is extremely soft. “Baby Alpaca Fiber” is the softest and finest fiber derived from alpacas. It does not come from baby alpacas, but is a classification of alpaca fiber. After shearing, experts sort the fiber into different fiber classifications, and baby alpaca is the finest and softest fiber that comes from the fleece of the alpaca. When you wear a garment made with baby alpaca, you can feel the difference in softness as compared with one made from other classifications of alpaca fiber, such as “super fine”.
