    Washing Alpaca Wool Garments


    Maintaining alpaca wool can be easy as long as you know the correct steps and procedures. Choosing a gentle, natural shampoo with as little detergent as possible is key.

    Although alpaca wool is extremely resistant and performs much better than any other wool after machine washing, we recommend dry cleaning or hand washing in warm water (between 10 and 20 degrees), with a mild shampoo. It is important to keep a constant temperature of between 10 and 20 degrees when washing your alpaca wool clothes. If you wash your alpaca clothes by hand, simply let the water run for the duration of the washing and rinsing to keep the same temperature. It is advisable not to wring or twist the garment after washing, simply and gently pressing to remove excess water will do the trick. It is simply recommended to wash your wool clothes and accessories at the end of the season in order to protect them from mites that would invite themselves into these natural fibres.

    It is advisable to place your wool garment in a towel, so it will absorb excess water and your product will dry faster. Choose a completely flat natural drying process= to avoid stretching the fibres, and ideally in the open air, preferably not in direct sunlight.
