Contrary to what you might think from its name, Baby Alpaca Wool does not come from baby alpaca, but from the softest and finest part of the adult animal's coat. This fiber is obtained from the careful selection of the best adult alpaca fibers, generally from the neck and back area, where the fiber is finer and softer.
The classification of Baby Alpaca is based on the diameter of the alpaca fibers, the finest and softest being those with a diameter of less than 20 microns. Baby Alpaca fibers are typically between 18 and 19 microns in diameter, making them much finer and softer than regular alpaca fibers.
