THE ALPACA
The alpaca is an herbivore mammal that belongs to the camelid family (camelidae). There are two principal breeds of alpaca: Huacaya and Suri. The Huacayo is the most common in Peru. It has short, spongy, dense wool that covers almost all of his body, leaving only his face and feet visible. The Suri has long, thin, silky and very shiny wool. The alpaca wool is clasified as one of the finest in the world, the width of the individual fiber is measured between 18 and 22 microns. What is Baby Alpaca? Alpaca products are generally labeled as either 100% Alpaca or Baby Alpaca. Baby alpaca, also known as Alpaca Plus, is finer wool that is shorn from younger animals, usually from the first two years of the animal´s life. The wool is softer and more expensive. After that the animal continues to produce more mature wool, which is used in 100%alpaca products.
