Baby Alpaca

At BellePaga, we provide you with the best quality wool to give you a feeling of comfort and softness like you've never felt before. Providing you with all the necessary conditions to guarantee a unique moment is at the heart of our mission.

The products we offer are designed so that you can also enjoy the delicacy of Alpaca wool and wear them elegantly in all circumstances, with no fear of being too cold, too hot or itchy.

This is why we decided to use Baby Alpaca wool and not Alpaca wool. Alpaca wool is known to be one of the softest fibres and is available in different variations. Among these, there is Baby Alpaca, which remains the Alpaca fibre that offers maximum softness and warmth.

Despite what you may think, the term "Baby Alpaca" does not refer to the shearing of baby Alpacas.

Alpaca wool, also known as "wool of the gods", comes from the camelids of South America. The fine hair of these animals is highly prized by humans. Alpaca fibre is internationally known and presented as the finest and most luxurious in the world. It has many virtues such as resistance (4 times more resistant than sheep's wool), softness, warmth (7 times warmer than sheep's wool), waterproofness and it is a hypoallergenic fibre.




The fiber is measured in microns (fiber thickness). There are 5 categories of classification: 

Thickness

Name

- 18 microns

Royal baby Alpaga

18 to 22 microns

Baby Alpaga

22,1 to 26,9 microns

Fine Alpaga

27 to 29,9 microns

Medium Alpaga

+ 18 microns

Strong Alpaga


Baby Alpaca" therefore corresponds to the Alpaca fibre which is between 18 and 22 microns. It is a very fine fibre that represents the softest part of the Alpaca's hair.

During the annual shearing, Alpacas produce between 2.5 and 4.5kg of fibre which is then transformed by local producers into very high quality clothing.

Baby Alpaca is often compared to silk for the softness and comfort of the fibres but is softer and warmer. It is soft and provides you with a new experience of comfort. This is why we mainly deal with the "Baby Alpaca" quality in order to offer a quality selection to our customers.
