1. Gently wash in warm water with a mild soap or shampoo and thoroughly rinse in water of the same temperature. Special care must be taken as wet alpaca fabric can weaken and stretch out of shape. Never wring or twist. Gently press excess water from the garment.
2. Lay it on a dry towel. Ease the garment back into shape and roll up in the towel. Press to remove excess water and repeat this step with a second towel.
3. Lay the sweater flat to dry on a fresh, dry towel, until thoroughly air-dried.
4. Never hang an alpaca sweater as it will stretch the garment out of shape. Lay flat in a drawer or on a shelf.
If stains persist: Dry cleaning may be the only solution.
We do not recommend machine washing. In the event you decide to use washing machine please secure the garment in a tied pillowcase and set on gentle cycle; cool water. Do not tumble dry.
