Alpaca and Size

Apikali Wool Soakers - 100% Alpaca - are covers handmade by Tennille.

Check out how to care for Alpaca wool soakers by The Cloth Nappy Doctor.

My parents, Judy and Greg, own an Alpaca Farm in Beverley WA. We visit there often and enjoy the country air and relaxed lifestyle. They have raised Alpacas for over 19 years. In that time they have come to love each alpaca and their individual personalities.

Over the years they have kept their wool and had it hand-spun into balls for knitting or crocheting. At Winter Alpacas the animals are hand-reared, free to frolic (and yes alpacas do frolic) and run the paddocks. When it comes to obtaining that gorgeous soft alpaca wool, these animals are hand sheared, the wool is hand cleaned and then it is sent off to be hand-spun. The wool does not undergo any chemical processing or dying procedures. The colours you see below are the colour of the gorgeous alpacas. And in their honour we have named each colour by the alpaca and let you in on a bit of their personality.

Alpaca wool is softer than merino wool, so therefore less itchy or irritating for babies with sensitive skin.

Apikali Wool Soakers come in three sizes and 2 weights

Size 1: Approx 0-9 months 2.7 to 5.5 kg Rise 22cm Width 18 cm

Size 2: Approx 9-18 months 5 to 11 kg Rise 26cm Width 20cm

Size 3: Approx 18 + months 10.5 to 16 kg Rise 28 cm Width 26

Size 4: Approx 15kg + Rise 31cm Width 28cm

If you have a chubby baby, consider purchasing the next size up.

There are 2 weights available:

The light version is great for summer or warm winter days to cover your cloth nappies.

The heavy version is fantastic for cool summer nights or chilly winter days. They make great covers to your cloth nappies when paired with thigh high socks.

Each wool soaker is a one off. They are each unique to Apikali.

Please note these covers are not designed for very heavy wetters. 

There is no need to lanolise alpaca wool soakers as they are not absorbent, they act like a PUL cover. A breathable outer layer. The structure of the fibre acts to repel moisture back into the nappy, due to its hollow nature. To ensure your cover will work beautifully, ensure your fitted cloth nappy is appropriately boosted. Alpaca wool soakers are not waterproof, like merino wool covers, and are not designed to hold moisture in like plastic pants.

Apache is a Stud Male. His fleece won 6 blue ribbons, which means its exceptional quality. He has a very gentle and quite nature. This wool was lovely to knit with.

Saffin was a beautiful petit animal with a gentle nature. My parents sold her to another breeder but kept her gorgeous wool from the hand shearings.

Ebony was one of my favourite alpacas when visiting. Her fleece is black and super soft. And I mean super soft, at times when knitting I could not 'feel' the wool in my hands as it was so light. But given her wool properties, she had attitude. She ensured she was boss and let the other girls in the paddock have a piece of her mind.

Cherokee was one of Rasputin’s first cria (babies) and won more than 6 blue ribbons with her fine rich coloured grey fleece. She had a quiet gentle nature and was a brilliant Mum. She produces a beautiful soft rose grey wool soaker.

Rasputin was WA’S premier Grey stud male who with his progeny won over 70 ribbons in all shows, including Perth Royal, Whiteman Park and numerous others. He had a gentle personality and was always easy to handle. He has now retired and living an enjoyable life quietly on the farm.
