What is an alpaca?

Throughout this whole page, we are going to mention a lot a special kind of wool, alpaca wool. But before going in more detail on this wool, it is important to mention and develop what is an alpaca.
An alpaca is an animal, from the family of the camelids. An alpaca is a cousin to the llama. Unlike many beliefs, they are actually quite different. They have pointier ears and are smaller and less muscular. They also have a much more dense and softer coat. Llamas are not famous for their fur, unlike alpacas, and are mostly used for transportation purposes. What makes the alpaca so unique is also the huge variation of colors the fur can have. There are around 20 different official colors and way more undertones! That will most certainly make many different and unique thick wool scarves.
An alpaca is a very calm animal. He is very shy and does not make a lot of noise. Unlike common beliefs, alpacas do not spit easily on strangers. They only spit amongst themselves and spit on humans when they feel threatened or in danger. You have therefore no reason to believe an alpaca will spit on you!
Alpacas are becoming more and more popular. Across Europe, alpaca farms are arising and you can now easily find an alpaca farm near you whether you live in France, the UK, Germany, Norway or even Sweden. In these farms, a multiple choice of activities is possible. Depending on the farm, you can only do a visit, take a walk in the countryside with alpacas, sleep for the night on the farm or even organize special events such as hen parties or even marriages.
At BellePaga, we have created a platform that lists a huge number of alpaca farms in Europe. The list is constantly growing so do not hesitate to have a look at it on our website!

Cashmere scarf

Very often compared to cashmere, alpaca wool is in fact different in many ways. It is firstly extremely warm. It is seven times warmer than sheep’s wool. That make it the perfect wool to compose a thick wool scarf. Barely placed on your neck, it will instantly bring you a sensation of warmth and comfort. It is also very lightweight. That makes it a very comfortable scarf to wear as it will not be a burden to wear on your neck. It also does not itch or pick, as it is a hypoallergenic wool that can be worn by even the most sensitive skins. Alpaca wool is also very durable, it is four times more resistant than sheep’s wool. That will make your thick wool scarf last longer than your usual scarf. You will be able to wear it for many years. Another main characteristic of alpaca wool is that it is thermoregulatory. Because an alpaca has to go through enormous temperature variations during the same day, its coat has adapted to this situation and is capable of keeping you warm when you are cold while at the same time not making you too hot and therefore, preventing from sweat, odors and humidity. Alpaca wool is finally a very ecological wool as it not treated with chemical products and it does not contain lanolin.
All these different properties: durability, thermoregulation, ecological, warmth, softness, comfort, long-lasting and hypoallergenic make alpaca wool the perfect wool for your thick wool scarf.

Baby alpaca wool

Alpaca wool has therefore many different properties, but that’s not all!
There are actually several types of alpaca wool, but the most two famous ones are “classic” alpaca wool and baby alpaca wool.
But what is the difference between the two?
Baby alpaca wool is unlike what most people think not from the coat of a small alpaca but from the first shearing of the alpaca. The baby alpaca is therefore a softer, thinner and more dense wool than the regular alpaca wool. It is extremely rare and makes items softer and warmer.
That is why, at BellePaga, almost all our products are made out of baby alpaca wool. We seek to offer the most quality products with the best quality wool.
