Alpaca Stripes

FABRIC DESCRIPTION: 

Hand-painted Alpaca irregular stripe knit fabric made in Belgium, with yarns in Italy (75% alpaca and 25% recycled pet.). This knit is a rare and natural animal fibre that is softer than cashmere. It is a lightweight and very airy textile retaining warmth 3-5 times warmer than wool. This fabric is a dream to wear - it's breathable, absorbent, wrinkle-free, has good recovery, and feels luxurious. It is the perfect fabric for autumn and winter as it is airy and will keep you warm. 

This is a general guide on how to care for your fine alpaca garment, helping you make your clothes look better and last longer.

 

GARMENT CARE DESCRIPTION: 

HAND WASH

Because virgin wool is so delicate, we recommend always hand washing it with lukewarm water. Use an appropriate soap made to specifically wash wool so as not to damage the scales. 

DRY NATURALLY 

It is recommended that these garments are flat dried after washing on surfaces away from direct sunlight. These garments are not recommended to tumble dry. To speed up the drying process, you can roll your clothes in white towels to absorb the water. Never hang up wet knitwear, it will lose its shape. Virgin wool should not be dried in an electric dryer. 

LOW IRONING

Set the iron on the Wool or Medium heat setting. Too hot-a-setting could lead to discolouration or in the worst case causes scorch marks. However, the best option is to lay the garment flat and gently reshape and size by hand; this way it will be wrinkle free.
