How do I care for my knitwear?
Alpaca knitwear can last a lifetime if it is cared for well. It will hardly need washing as the natural fibres resist dirt. The best thing we suggest is washing in tepid water, by hand. Do not rub or soak for long periods of time as this could felt the fibre. Once clean do not ring out the water, this can stretch the garment. Instead leave flat to dry. Do not tumble dry or dry clean and avoid washing in a machine. If these steps are followed your item will last you for years.
All items come with a luxury branded box for you to store your item away from those pesky nibbling moths. They love natural fibre, maybe even more than we do!
