How alpaca knitwear makes the future better for our kidsby Heleen DevosWhat makes alpaca wool so special compared to other wool types?
Alpaca wool is a very fine material. Baby alpaca wool is used for extra soft jerseys, ideal for our kids. This wool does not come from young animals, but comes from the back of an adult alpaca. The back is a place that is the least soiled and produces very soft wool.
