What is the difference between Alpaca and Baby Alpaca wool?
Alpaca wool is one of the softest and tastiest materials we can find in the textile sector, followed by cashmere or silk.
However, in recent years the demand for baby alpaca has grown exponentially.
Baby alpaca wool differs from alpaca wool in that it is the first wool obtained by shearing an adult animal, hence the reason for its softness. When we talk about baby alpaca wool we are referring to a wool of a much more virgin, soft and pure quality, resulting in a very velvety texture.
me baby alpaca wool consists of a maximum thickness of 23 microfibers, giving it a very soft and gentle feel against the skin. as with classic alpaca wool, the ideas are internally hollow and therefore have unique thermal properties. This added value makes alpaca textiles ideal for both summer and winter.
The classic alpaca alarm has a fiber thickness of approximately 30 microfibers and is distinguished by the natural luster of the material.
