Baby alpaca is not fiber from cute little alpaca babies; it’s the term used for alpaca fiber between 20-23 microns (micrometers) and is one of the finest and softest alpaca grades used for hand-knitting yarn. Combined with the smooth surface of the silk, this softness results in a yarn that feels especially gentle and cool against the skin. Both alpaca and silk have good heat-regulating properties and the silk has a unique moisture-absorbing property. Alpaca fiber does not contain lanolin.
