Alpaca Fibre and Care

Alpaca wool was called “the fibre of the gods” by the ancient Incas, who were well aware of its exceptional qualities. It is as soft and luxurious as cashmere, stronger than mohair, and warmer and softer than sheep wool. Alpaca wool is an excellent insulator and is extremely durable. Its fibres are elastic and will stretch to fit your children as they grow. Because it doesn’t contain lanolin, alpaca wool is hypoallergenic and doesn’t irritate the skin. It naturally repels water and has antibacterial properties so your knitwear will stay clean longer. 

To care for your Miou designer kids' clothes, hand wash your knitwear in cold water with a mild detergent and lay flat to dry.
