Baby Alpaca wool, precious hypoallergenic fiber, fine and brilliant, is obtained by spinning the fleece of the littlest Suri alpaca of the Andes, an extremely rare species that can give birth to only one puppy per year.
Precious natural fiber loved for its qualities of lightness, softness and high gloss, is used since 3000 BC to dress Chinese emperors becoming over the centuries a symbol of exclusivity.
