Details and Care
50% pima cotton, 45% FS alpaca*, 5% polyamide
*FS stands for the superfine hand-brushed alpaca quality. Alpaca is the cohesion of all the other fibers: the softness of cashmere, the shininess of mohair, the thickness of angora and the strength of merino wool. Their fiber is flame-resistant and it can also wick away moisture because of its unique ability to mimic cotton in moisture regain. This is what makes alpaca feel lighter than wool but warmer than cotton in cool, damp climates.
Handknitted in Peru by artisans who were all fairly treated and paid for their work.
Note that actual colors might vary slightly from your monitor.
Do not wash, but rather air out your alpaca garments from time to time. If stained, dry clean only. Keep your wool garments safe from moths by using organic lavender pockets.
