Washing and maintenance
GOOD TO KNOW
Our garments contain sulfur which has self-cleaning properties, so you should always try to air the garment first. Bad smells often disappear quickly when the alpaca garment is allowed to hang freely in the fresh air, so perhaps it is not necessary to wash it after all. A garment that is washed a little less often stays nice for longer.
Stains can advantageously be treated directly, without washing the entire garment. Gently squeeze with a damp cloth. Do not rub, as the yarn felts easily.
If the garment needs to be washed, it must be washed using the most gentle method. If your washing machine has a wool cradle, we recommend you use it, if not, hand washing is the best method. Always use a special detergent or normal hair shampoo. Never use fabric softener.
The garment should be dried flat.
