Boys are bound to get dirty, but never fear—your alpaca cardigan might look like it needs to be treated with kid’s gloves, but it is actually surprisingly strong and sturdy. Alpaca wool is incredibly soft, yet has stain-resistant and water-resistant properties: the perfect combination for boys who like to play in the mud!
To wash your cardigan, soak in a mild detergent in cold water and gently squeeze to mix in the soap. Avoid wringing, which can cause stretching. Rinse well and lay between two towels. Roll the towels to soak up the excess water. Lay the cardigan flat on a fresh towel to dry.
