How to take care of your alpaca garments?

If you chose to help the artisans and bought an alpaca garment, either because it caught your attention or because the cold season is coming, but you are afraid that it will be damaged, here I will give you some tips that you must follow to keep it for more time.

First, you should not be afraid because these garments are usually of great quality, therefore they last a long time.

To do?

  • Wash these clothes by hand
  • Use cold water
  • Use mild soap
  •  Soak for 3 to 4 minutes
  •  When laying it out to remove excess water, you can lay a towel on a flat surface and then place the garment on the towel and roll it up loosely. This is done so that the towel absorbs the water.
  •  Always dry it in the shade, this is so that the original color is not lost

What not to do?

  •  Do not use a washing machine (if you use it, you must take into account that it is a wash for wool and do not use the spin function)
  •  Do not tumble dry
  • Do not use chlorine
  •  Never use hot water, so that the fabric is not damaged or the garment shrinks.
  • When washing it should not be twisted
  • Do not iro

Tip: Make sure that the garment is completely dry when you store it, it would also be good to store the garment in a plastic bag, and if you store it in a wooden wardrobe, make sure it does not have moths, as this can affect the garment.
