Alpaca fiber is hypoallergenic and can be used by the most sensitive skin. It lacks the lanolin that causes allergies and is not itchy like some of the other kinds of wools.
All products are weaved in Peru by artisans utilizing traditional techniques passed down the generations. They are made using natural fibers and natural dyes.
Size: 5ft x 7ft
The perfect blend of 80% Alpaca and 20% wool.
To keep the comfort and excellent quality of alpaca products, we suggest the following:
The best way to keep your alpaca product intact is to hand wash it. To keep it from shrinking you must avoid hot water and wringing. Wash your product with cold water and use a mild soap (we use original Dawn dish soap); fill up a basin with cold to slightly warm water (85º F). Add a small quantity of Dawn and wash it without rubbing strongly.
If you wish to maintain its colour and quality, avoid washing machines and the use of bleach.
To avoid your alpaca product from loosing its shape, press slightly to remove the water. Never wring. Do not use a drying machine. Dry flat, reshaping the product and keeping it from direct sunlight.
It is best to not iron any alpaca product unless necessary. In that case, to avoid direct contact with the iron, place a towel in between to protect the oil.
Make sure that your product is completely dry before putting it away. Fold it carefully avoiding wrinkles. In some climates moths could cause a problem. If this is your case, place your alpaca products in plastic bags with small scented bags. DO NOT use mothballs.
