Hand-washing is the gentlest method of cleaning an Alpaca garment, and will add years to the life of your Alpaca clothing.
Here is a set of care instructions to extend the life of your alpaca products.
Follow these four simple steps and your Alpaca purchase will give you years of luxurious comfort and wear.
If stains persist:
In the event of stubborn stains, dry cleaning may be the only solution. We do not recommend machine washing. That being said, should you decide to use your washing machine, secure the garment in a tied pillowcase and set on gentle cycle; cool water. Proceed to steps 3 and 4.
To clean and restore the luster to your alpaca garments, we offer specially formulated Alpaca cleaning clothing.
For all our fur items, we recommend you use a wire pet brush to restore the fur. A light brushing and you will be impressed how easily your fur is restored. For more serious cleaning or for when liquids have been spilt on the fur, cover with talcum powder and gently but deeply rub in. Leave for an hour or two then brush away the excess. This will lift residues and dirt and restore the fluffiness of the fur.
