Wash cold by hand with mild soap and dry flat, away from any heat source or the sun. If necessary, iron at the lowest temperature.
Alpaca fibre does not retain much dust or odours so you will not need to wash your items very often. In good weather, you can air them outside and let the wind do the work for you!
We suggest 3 possibilities for washing:
- Dry cleaning
- Fill a container with warm/cold water. Add Eucalan*. Soak for 15 minutes, do not agitate. Press gently by hand to remove excess water. Do not twist nor rinse!
- Other mild soap: follow the same instructions as with Eucalan, but rinse with cold water.
*Eucalan: Rinse-free soap enriched with lanolin and lavender oil (a natural mothproof product), or natural and unscented. Cleans deeply and enhances the natural beauty of silk, alpaca fleece and mohair, or any other delicate washable article. Available in store. Biodegradable and non-toxic.
