About Baby Alpaca
Alpaca wool is a pure natural fibre that comes from the Alpaca, an animal native to the Andes Mountains in South America where it has been used to knit and weave for thousands of years. All of the clothes produced by Waddler are made from 100% Baby Alpaca* whose long fibres are softer than sheep’s wool and being hypoallergenic mean they are gentle on children’s delicate skin.
To allow Alpacas to withstand the sub-zero temperatures and blazing sun of the high Andes, their wool has to be both super warm and breathable. Baby Alpaca has both of these qualities with the added benefit of being lightweight.
*(Baby Alpaca refers to the fine grade of the wool rather than it coming from young Alpacas)
Wash your fabulous Alpaca wool cardigan by hand using wool wash or a little bit of your own shampoo and dry flat to keep its shape.
