Cria is the name for a baby camelid such as an alpaca, llama or vicuna. It is derived from the Spanish word cria, meaning "baby."
SimpliCria is a soft as cashmere and has a beautiful halo; it is one of our most favorite alpaca yarn lines hands down! Why is this 100% baby alpaca yarn so soft? SimpliCria is made with the finest 1% of all Alpaca Fleece. In HiKoo's Peruvian mill, Alpaca is hand sorted two times. During the first sort, the top 10% of the fleece is set aside as Baby Alpaca (21-22.5 microns). After hand sorting the Baby Alpaca, the softest 10% is then designated as Super Baby Alpaca (19-20 microns). SimpliCria has a small chainette construction that works up into amazingly soft and luxurious accessories, sweaters and more. We cannot stop petting our own stash of SimpliCria, it is simply wonderful.
