These warm patterned knits are made from a wonderfully soft wool blend of merino wool, acrylic and baby alpaca. Merino wool comes from the merino sheep. This wool is thinner and softer than regular wool and therefore comfortable to wear. Baby alpaca fibers are knitted into the wool blend for extra softness. Baby alpaca is the wool from the first shearing of the alpaca's, therefore it is very thin and super soft. It is hypoallergenic and seven times warmer than classic wool. The alpaca wool we use is from the Huacaya alpaca from Peru. They live and graze year-round on the Altiplano in the Peruvian Andes. Finally, we added acrylic to the blend for thread reinforcement so that the items will hold their shape.
You can wash these items in the machine. Choose a wool wash programme at 30° maximum and use a detergent suitable for wool and silk. After washing, it is best to lay the garments flat to dry. To prevent garments from stretching, it is best to fold them instead of hanging them in your closet.
