Four reasons why you should love alpaca wool
Today’s market has an extensive offering in terms of clothing design and it’s material. All what customer has to do in choosing the garment is to match one’s fashion taste with financial capabilities. Nevertheless, the team of WolliMolli has noticed that the tendency to prefer clothing’s price and brand’s popularity shifts away one’s focus from garment’s characteristics that truly matter such as material’s quality and durability.
Weather fluctuations during recent years have made people more carefully consider clothing choices, which is not an easy task for adults. But how is it for babies? Each day parents need to make challenging clothing choices for their children, taking into account previously mentioned changing weather conditions as well as child’s activity level in his or her every day routine.
In today’s blog we would like to underscore Top 5 reasons why do we love and prefer alpaca wool garments and why do we think that parents should do it to. Before we start, we would like to introduce a comparatively new term, which will be repeated couple of times in following paragraph – thermoregulatory.
Thermoregulation is a process in human body that enables maintaining stability amidst changing conditions. This ability is perfectly developed for adults and older children; however, for infants the system becomes fully developed only in one years’ time, which means that parents have to carefully observe the indicators of body’s overheating and cooling, as well as to provide them with infant clothing that has thermoregulatory capabilities, and which also enables baby to freely move around and provides high level of comfort.
The characteristics of alpaca wool:
Thermoregulatory capabilities. Alpaca wool has thermoregulatory capabilities, which is also a reason why alpaca animals are capable to adapt rapid temperature changes. Because of the thermoregulatory properties, the alpaca wool garments are useful and perfect choice of clothing material in any season of the year.
The alpaca wool’s fiber is strong per same fineness. Strength per same fineness. (“Benefits of Alpaca Fiber,” n.d.). The fibre of alpaca wool is fine and strong, at the same time it doesn’t lose its temperature regulation capacity. The alpaca wool’s garments will be finer, warmer and more durable than garments from the sheep wool, for instance.
