Baby alpaca yarn is yarn spun from alpaca fiber that is fine enough to be classified as “baby alpaca.” Alpaca fiber is classified not by age of the animal, but by the diameter of the hair. Baby alpaca is the finest, softest yarn, and it is highly prized for knitting and other crafts. It also tends to be very costly.

Alpacas are camelids related to llamas and vicunas. They grow coats of dense, fine hair that is very strong and has superb insulating properties. They are periodically sheared so that their fleeces can be combed, sorted, and spun into yarn and thread. Alpaca yarns are extremely warm, very soft, and somewhat shiny or glossy. They do not repel water well because alpacas do not produce lanolin.

In the case of baby alpaca yarn, the yarn is made with alpaca hair that is 21-23 microns wide. Superfine alpaca yarn is made with somewhat larger hairs, while suri is the coarsest alpaca fiber. People who are experienced with handling and processing alpaca hair can grade the raw fiber by weight, feel, and heft. Grading takes place soon after shearing to determine how much a given alpaca fleece is worth.
