Alpaca wool is a wonderful thing. Because alpacas continue to produce wool throughout their lives, it is a sustainable wool and alpacas leave a very small eco-footprint thanks to their efficient grazing habits. The wool is soft and silky, which makes it a great choice for children’s clothing.
Your alpaca garments will need a little TLC to keep them in top condition. To wash leg warmers, soak in cold water with a mild detergent and squeeze gently to distribute soap evenly. Rinse well and press out the excess water before laying flat on a clean towel. Make sure you don’t twist or wring the items or they will become misshapen.
