Care and wash

Alpaca wool will soften by time through wear. The best feel is usually acquired after a couple of weeks of use.

Alpaca is naturally resistant to dirt and odors and will not require washing in normal use. Typically, hanging the garment outside is enough to refresh the knit. Remember to give your knitwear a day of rest every now and then.

If alpaca garment is stained, we recommend cleaning the stain carefully with a moistened towel.

Alpaca knitwear can also be hand-washed with cool temperature. Remember to dry the garment on a flat surface to prevent stretching.

Taking care of your garment

If your garment gets creased, you can straighten it with light steaming and ironing. Snags and pulls can be pulled inside the garment with a crochet hook.

When it comes to pilling resistance, alpaca is one of the best natural materials available. Despite this, all natural materials can form some pilling. We recommend de-pilling the garment carefully with sweater shaver.
