Before we wash our fiber, we blow out the dust! How much dust? This video shows how the dust and second cuts we miss during skirting come right out. Alpacas love to roll in a dust bath. Blowing out the fiber after skirting reduces the amount of water we use. It's that much less dust in our products and saves wear and tear on our equipment.

How to care for your alpaca fiber products

Alpaca Fiber Care Tips

  • Alpaca fiber is naturally antimicrobial, so it doesn't need to be washed often.
  • When it does need a good clean, wash on a gentle cool cycle (preferable a wool cycle if your machine has one) with a mild detergent, or hand wash.
  • For best results, turn your garment inside out before washing.
  • The best way to dry your alpaca garment is just to lay it out on a flat surface to air-dry.
