Here's how
the story goes

Baby alpaca fibres are taken from the neck and nape of the animal, most often from the first shearing of an alpaca/ This gives the softest, most beautiful fibre the animal is likely to produce. Ours comes from populations bred in the Andean Highlands, making their wool extremely strong, elastic, soft and fine. It's hypoallergenic and its thermal properties make it the best yarn for babies.
