Hand wash only
Washing is not always necessary and it is hard on your garment and on the environment. Alpaca is a self cleaning fiber that requires less washing than other materials. To save resources, simply air your garment for a fresh start. However, if you do wish to wash our garment, we recommend hand wash, 30 degrees, using high quality liquid wool soap. Let the garment soak in water for 10-15 minutes. Rinse in 30 degrees water. Avoid twisting, pressing or squeezing the water out and let the garment dry flat.
If you have a very gentle washing machine it is possible to wash your alpaca garment in the machine on a wool program 30 degrees, low cycle. However washing in the machine is at ones own risk, as we cannot guarantee the individual program settings on washing machines.
