Her at Alpaca Valley Farms, we sell all sorts of Alpaca clothing for kids and adults. Alpaca Clothing is warm, durable, and so soft that you won’t even believe it. This makes the material perfect for making clothing that children will love to wear.
Alpacas are social herd animals that have been raised in mountainous regions of South America for thousands of years. The wool that they produce is cheered once a year and then spun into yarn. That yard is turned into all sorts of products that you can find everywhere.
The fiber that Alpacas produce is five times warmer than wool but not itchy like those socks your mom made you wear in the winder! Statistically speaking, Alpaca fiber is the softest luxury fiber available. That means that is even softer than silk and cashmere.
What makes Alpaca clothing for kids so popular is that the clothing is naturally hypoallergenic. Alpacas do not produce lanolin, so they naturally do not contain allergens. With allergies at an all time high and on the rise, a warm type of clothing that does not itch or cause allergic reactions is great news.
We sell all sorts of Alpaca clothing for kids in our store below. We have socks, sweaters, shawls and a wide verity of other clothing items. Take a look around and make sure to keep us in mind for all of your Alpaca Clothing needs in the future.
More On Alpacas
They are classified as prey animals in the scientific world, meaning that they are at the bottom of the food chain. While they have plenty of predators, they do not kill anything besides the grass they eat. While they do spit, their go to defense move is outrun whatever is chasing them.
Most of the Alpaca clothing for children that you will see sold is imported from Peru. They are the leading exporter of Alpaca fiber and products in the world. We do not provide enough Alpaca fiber in The United States to warrant a large scale production of Alpaca products. Most of what we do here is done with “mom and pop shops” in the cottage industry.
Larger conglomerates have had trouble producing Alpaca fiber on a large scale in The United States because they only produce one offspring a year. This makes it hard for someone to start producing on a large scale in a fast manner. Most fiber used for producing Alpaca clothing for kids comes from small owner operated farms.
This lack of supply and huge demand is the reason for the high prices that you will see. Since the fiber is mainly produced outside of The United Sates, you have to pay extra for the shipping, taxes, and fees to get it from South America to your closet.
