The search for new yarns has always been one of our first goals. Our intent is to offer something new, of excellent quality, soft and light, with a lively color range and a contemporary style!

Alpaca and Wool together. Here’s how Woolpaca is born!

Woolpaca is a natural yarn that does not contain synthetic fibers. It is composed of 50% of Baby Alpaca and 50% of Wool.

As we all know, Alpaca wool is very valuable. It is classified as a luxury fiber. Like silk, it is naturally shiny, does not contain lanolin, which is why it is hypoallergenic and very suitable for baby clothes. The sensation to the skin is the same as cashmere, but more durable and resistant!

Baby Alpaca wool is even more fine!

The definition Baby Alpaca does not identify the hair of the puppy, as one might think, but the particular finesse. Baby alpaca fiber is made from the youngest alpacas and from the areas of the adult coat where the hairs are thinner. The finer the fiber, the better the wool!

In Woolpaca, the Baby Alpaca has been joined to the Wool to make it more accessible: the fiber cost of Alpaca is always higher due to the scarcity of the flocks, living in freedom, in the Andean highlands.

Woolpaca is made in Italy!

Therefore it couldn’t have been born than here a so beautiful and quality new yarn!
