Caring for Alpaca
Alpaca products can last a lifetime if they are cared for properly. Please check our care instructions prior to washing your alpaca products. We generally recommend using an organic dry cleaning company to care for your items.
The Do Not’s
- Do not machine wash
- Do not use soap or heavy detergent
- Do not bleach
- Do not wring
- Do not tumble dry
- Do not dry products in, or expose products to direct sunlight
Please see individual care instructions for the items that can be hand washed.
Hand wash Items using cold water and a gentle detergent (our recommendation: The Laundress)
Lay flat, reshape to original size and shape, and air dry in a well ventilated area
Iron / steam with care
(Machine wash inside out / Cold gentle cycle / Do not bleach / Do not tumble dry / Do not iron)
Benji Dog Sweater
(Hand wash cold / Do not bleach / use a towel to roll out excess water from product / Dry flat / Iron low)
Storing Your Alpaca
Items are best kept folded (not hung)
We recommend storing your alpaca products in an airtight bag with cedar balls to preserve quality and deter moths.
This is the easy one. Gently hand wash in cold water. We recommend that you turn them inside out to avoid pilling. Never bleach. Lay flat or hang dry in a well ventilated area.
Just remember –
the better you take care of your alpaca, the better (and longer) it will take care of you.
