Alpaca is a fibre that works really well in keeping you warm; looked after, our garments last for years. As a natural fibre, it rarely needs washing as it repels dirt and doesn’t hold smells. Should you wish to freshen it up, we recommend hand washing in lukewarm water using shampoo and adding conditioner to the final rinse. We also provide Care Instructions which gives extra tips on how to look after your Purl Alpaca Design.
At Purl Alpaca Designs our products are sustainable, ethical and organic. Our yarn is made from the best quality fibre, hand prepared and spun in the UK. No dye is used and environmentally aware, our packaging is made from recycled materials.
