Alpaca is a sustainable, eco-friendly wool that feels smooth and soft against the skin. That’s why it’s the perfect wool for young children, who can be sensitive to some fabrics.
To wash your hat, start by soaking in cool water with a mild detergent. Do not use hot water, which can turn alpaca wool to felt as the heat bands the fibres together. Squeeze the hat gently to wash, being careful not to twist or wring. Press out the excess water and lay flat on a clean towel to dry.
