ALPACA PRODUCT CARE
After 16 years in the business, our knowledge of the quality and care of our alpaca yarns is second to none.
Alpaca improves with age. Our products will not always feel as soft and supple when new as they will with continued wear.
Please follow these guidelines and you will enjoy your alpaca products for many years to come!
Our exclusive yarn combines 70% finest micron baby alpaca with 30% bamboo viscose to create a supremely soft, silky yarn, less prone to pilling. It is harder wearing, drapes beautifully and while it remains uniquely insulating, it is more breathable, less “hairy” and therefore more transseasonal. It also washes beautifully.
A cool handwash (30º) with a mild detergent such as baby shampoo is recommended. Wash for no more than 5 minutes. Rinse in lukewarm water, always pressing, not wringing the fabric. Wrap the item in a clean dry towel to absorb excess moisture. Reshape as necessary and lay flat to dry. Do not hang your wet alpaca garment as it will stretch.
While it is possible to machine wash some of our garments on a 30º cool wash cycle, we cannot guarantee the result, because the make and condition of different washing machines varies too much! However, if you do wish to use this method for some of our smaller and less delicate items, we recommend you turn the product inside out and place in a gauze laundry bag.
For very stubborn stains, please take your item to a professional dry cleaner.
We recommend that all our alpaca products are folded or rolled, rather than hung to prevent stretching.
Items with Alpaca Fur and/or Merino Fleece
For all our fur items, we recommend you use a wire pet brush to restore the fur. Day to day sweat and grime disappears with a good brushing and you will be impressed how easily your fur is restored. Avoid wearing perfume or hairspray if this might come into contact with your fur as the alcohol/chemical content can dry out the leather skin. Oils may also penetrate the fur and turn rancid.
For more serious cleaning or for when liquids have been spilt on the fur, cover with talcum powder and gently but deeply rub in. Leave for an hour or two then brush away the excess. This will lift residues and dirt from the hair shaft and restore the fluffiness of the fur.
For items like our fur rugs and cushions, you may prefer to get your fur/fleece product professionally cleaned by a furrier or fur cleaning specialist.
However, for items like our fur trim gloves, fur pom pom hats and snoods, a cool handwash (30º) with a mild detergent such as baby shampoo is possible, although we recommend that you concentrate on sponging the fur clean and avoid letting the leather skin become soaked. Reshape as necessary and wrap the item in a clean dry towel to absorb excess moisture. Do not hang as it will stretch. The item must then be left flat to dry slowly and naturally, away from any direct heat such as a radiator, or the skin will go stiff and crispy. Only wash the fur as infrequently as possible as over time it will deplete the natural oils.
