Washing and care instructions for alpaca wool products:
Hand washing is a particularly gentle method of cleaning. The water should not exceed 30 degrees. It is best to use wool detergent or shampoo for washing.
Important! Avoid rubbing or wringing your clothes. Multiple immersion and subsequent rinsing with warm water is usually sufficient for cleaning.
If your washing machine has a wool washing cycle, the product can be washed that way. Just make sure to wash at 30 degrees and switch off the spin cycle.
