Baby alpaca is not fibre from cute little alpaca babies; it’s the term used for alpaca fibre between 20-23 microns and is one of the finest and softest alpaca grades used for hand-knitting yarn. Combined with the smooth surface of the silk, this softness results in a yarn that feels especially gentle and cool against the skin. Both alpaca and silk have good heat-regulating properties and the silk has a unique moisture-absorbing property. Alpaca fibre does not contain lanolin.

For machine washing, Sandnes Garn recommends that all wool garments be washed separately on a wool program, to ensure the gentlest treatment. Spin well and dry the garment flat, preferably on top of a towel. Never use a laundry bag when washing hand-knitted wool garments. This creates friction that can cause the garment to felt.
