LEARN ABOUT ALPACA
Barbery Knits carefully chooses the highest quality of Bolivian ALPACA NATURAL FIBER for all handmade creations. This prestigious yarn is known and cherished worldwide. With the proper care, it promises to become a family heirloom and a keepsake type of gift.
LACK OF LANOLIN: Alpaca natural fiber is warmer and softer than wool and has no lanolin. The lack of lanolin makes it naturally hypoallergenic. Lanolin is an oil generated by sheep that can cause sensitivity in people.
ALPACA RANCHING IS 100% NATURAL: No harsh chemicals are needed to process alpaca fiber, making alpaca ranching 100% natural and safe for the environment.
Alpaca Washing Instructions
Caring for your Alpaca Winter Accessory
Choose a dry place to fold your alpaca garment gently and carefully. Do not hang — This can stretch your garment instantly. We don’t recommend plastic bags to avoid moisture. Some natural helpers to repel common bugs are cedar chips and lavender bunches. Little secret: Find a quality paper box (with nice thickness) every off-season to store your alpaca piece. This will provide extra protection.
If you wish to iron, gently and quickly (no vapor). Little secret: Place a towel on top of garment for extra protection.
