We love alpaca because:
- Alpaca fiber is unlike sheep’s wool, it has no grease or lanolin reducing allergen attractants therefore, hypo -allergenic .
- Thermal qualities of alpaca are superior, these fleecy, hollow fibers offer extreme featherweight warmth.
- Comes in 22 natural colors with hundreds of variations of each color.
- Alpaca fiber strength is excellent, resulting in a more durable product.
- Alpaca fiber is very comfortable, due to the low micron count, which results in apparel easy to wear without the normal itch factor found in other natural fibers.
- Wear Resistance – durable, stain resistant .
- Wrinkle Resistance – More resistant to wrinkling therefore, great travel wear as well as everyday wear.
- Can be cleaned without harsh chemicals.
Suggested care instructions for your alpaca garments
- Use cool water and a mild soap or a human hair shampoo.
- Never use chlorine bleach. Woolite is not recommended.
- Remove any excess water carefully, avoiding wringing or twisting.
- Dry the product in a flat position in the shade. Block the product, reshaping it to its original dimensions.
- By hand, carefully remove any wrinkles and straighten seams and facings. Never use a brush.
- After the product has dried, touch up with a cool iron, if needed
- If you have a two or three piece outfit, we recommend that you dry clean all the pieces at the same time to avoid color discrepancies that may occur.
- Inform the cleaner of any spot or stains.
- Ask the cleaner to use a fresh solvent in low heat and a process that does not involve tumbling.
- It is recommended that you go to a dry cleaner that has previously dealt with alpaca.
Storing and preserving your product
- Before storing, make sure that the item is fully dry.
- There are various techniques to avoid damage resulting from the presence of moths. It will be better if you store the product in a sealed cedar chest, a freezer (in a zip lock bag) or any moth protected environment, including a dryer sheet or two may aid in the reducing moth attraction.
- Sachets using dried lavender are also useful.
- We do not recommend the use of mothballs.
