Alpacas have one of the finest and most appreciated animal fibers, due to their unique characteristics. You may be aware that Alpaca garments can be found in many different places, and also that there are various qualities in this fiber.
Premium Royal Alpaca fiber (less than 20.0 microns) represents 1~3% of total yarn sheared from the young adult alpacas; Baby Alpaca fiber (20.0 ~ 22.9 microns) represents roughly 10%; and Superfine Regular Alpaca (23.0 ~ 25.0 microns) is the most common one.
There are other types of Alpaca fibers of lesser quality. However, we work solely with the three best qualities previously mentioned.
