From everyone at HuarmiMaki.com, we hope you enjoy your alpaca garments for years to come. We wish that your new alpaca garments endure a long wearable life so you can continue enjoying your purchase long after you first receive it.
Wash your garment with cold water, to avoid damage, use a mild soap. Wash the garment without rubbing to remove any dirt. If you want to keep the color and quality of your garment, avoid both the use of the washer and any bleach products.
To avoid deforming, crumpling, or wrinkling your garment, never kink or squeeze. It’s suggested not to use the clothes dryer, keep from direct sunlight, and dry in the shade to preserve the original color. Spread on a flat surface and hang it on a hanger in order to preserve its original form.
Alpaca wool is a very sensitive fiber and ironing should be avoided. If necessary, use a towel over the garment to iron at low temperature.
Tagua & Seeds
Tagua can be polished by hand with natural waxes (beeswax, for example) and lightly buffed to bring back shine. Generally this only needs to be done once a year at most, and can make an older tagua pieces look brand new again.
