Pure alpaca yarn

Our Alpaca yarn are made from the softest and warmest fibre in animals, the baby Alpaca. These are balls of pure Alpaca wool. Indeed, there are 2 categories of yarn in Alpaca: Alpaca fibre and Baby Alpaca fibre. Baby Alpaca wool is finer (about 22.5 microns compared to 29 microns) and does not necessarily come from young Alpacas, but from the first shearing of the animal that has a fine coat, or from areas where the fibre is the finest on the animal. It thus generally comes from the blanket around the shoulders, neck and rump of the animal. Our pure baby Alpaca yarn are made of extremely soft, silky and shiny fibres like silk. This wool is so comfortable that it can be worn directly on the skin. Baby Alpaca is considered to be the world's softest, most prestigious and natural fibre. It is rare and represents less than 10% of the total world production of Alpaca fibres.

 

Alpacas, they are close cousins of the llama and have been bred for thousands of years for their exceptional quality wool in the South American Andes around 5000 BC. In ancient Inca times, Alpaca fibre was used to make clothing for royalty and was known as "the fibre of the gods". There are two main breeds of Alpacas; the best known is the Huacaya Alpaca, which has a dense and curly curly coat, and the Suri Alpaca, which has shinier, but less curly hair that hangs along the body with a central part in the back.

 

Alpaca wool is naturally black, brown, white or grey and the different colours are often used together to remain undyed, although Alpaca fabric can be cross dyed after weaving. Alpacas are generally sheared every year. Once sheared, the Alpaca wool fibres are transformed into yarns from which they can be woven. As it takes a lot of work to produce, Alpaca wool is often mixed with other fibres, usually wool. But at BellePaga, all the balls are 100% baby alpaca wool! At BellePaga, only the finest and softest fibres of the neck and chin are used.

Pure Alpaca wool as a hypoallergenic fibre is an excellent choice for children and adults prone to allergies.

 

Finally, the natural balls of Alpaca wool are made in accordance with BellePaga's core values, namely in a short circuit, in the country of origin of the wool (Peru), in an unparalleled quality with hand finishing, and in full respect for the environment, animals and craftsmen paid at their fair value
