Alpaca is a species of South-American camelid. Unlike sheep wool, alpaka fur is not greasy, so it's hypoallergenic. Alpaca fur varies in fineness, according to its body parts. The finest fur can be collected from the abdominal parts and the neck. Fur, collected from these parts is called "baby alpaca (so it's not true that, this fur is "torn off of baby animals to satisfy the demand for luxury bedding. The fineness of the fur is measured in micrometres. To see the differences, we can bring some example. The thickness of spider web is around 2,5 micron, silk thread's is 14,5, while alpaca fur's fineness is between 15-25 micron. This means, that alpaca fur has a similarly soft touch as silk, and its use-value equals to cashmere's.
