Stretchy to fit most heads.
Our exclusive yarn combines 70% finest micron baby alpaca with 30% bamboo viscose to create a supremely soft, silky yarn, less prone to pilling. It is harder wearing, drapes beautifully and while it remains uniquely insulating, it is more breathable, less hairy and therefore more trans-seasonal. It also washes beautifully.
- Hand wash knitted part at 30 degrees celsius with a mild detergent such as Stergene or baby shampoo.
- Possible to machine wash some of our alpaca garments on a 30 degree celsius cool hand wash cycle inside a protective gauze bag. Wash for no more than 5 minutes.
- Rinse in lukewarm water, always pressing, not wringing the fabric. Wrap the item in a clean dry towel to absorb excess moisture. Reshape as necessary and lay flat to dry. Do not hang your wet alpaca garment as it will stretch.
- Do not tumble dry.
For very stubborn stains, please take your item to a professional dry cleaner.
The alpacas have not been killed for their fur. Our skins are ethically sourced from Suri and Huacaya alpacas which have died of natural causes, mainly from the weaker animals and baby alpacas or cria, as they are known.
Alpacas roam freely in their natural terrain on the Altiplano of the Andes where Winter temperatures can plummet below 15 degrees Celsius. It is not financially viable for farmers to kill their baby alpacas for their skins. The skins are tiny and worth little compared with fleeces which can be shorn during a whole lifetime. Alpacas can live for 20 years promising shearing potential of far greater value than a single pelt.

After 10 years in the business, our knowledge of the quality and care of our alpaca yarns is second to none.
Alpaca improves with age. Our products will not always feel as soft and supple when new as they will with continued wear. Do not trust other softer alpaca products which may contain acrylic. This will initially give a softer feel, but it will pill and ball very quickly.
While it is possible to machine wash some of our alpaca garments on a 30 degrees celsius cool hand wash cycle (ie a cycle which does not run for more than hours!), we cannot guarantee the result, and we do not recommend this action for any item with fur attachment. Where the fur accessory does not have detachable fur you can gently handwash the knitted part while keeping the fur part away from the water where possible. As our fur garments have been through a tanning process they do not react well when they come into contact with water. At no point should the fur be submerged in water - this can result in damage.
We recommend that all our alpaca products are folded or rolled, rather than hung to prevent stretching.
