The alpaca blankets are personally selected by Rebecca. There is a strict selection on quality. Rebecca selects the products for her webshop on honesty. Everything is purchased directly from the local communities. When you buy an alpaca blanket, you support the local population of Ecuador. Because the blankets are made in small numbers, there may be small differences in color, size or composition. But in general, these differences are so small that you can hardly see it.

Wool Blankets

These warm blankets consist for the most part of alpaca wool, namely 70%. The other 30% consists of 20% cotton and 10% acrylic. The alpaca wool makes the blankets very soft and warm. Alpaca wool consists of hollow fibres, which allows the wool to retain heat well.

100% alpaca wool blankets

In addition to the colored blankets, we also have 100% alpaca wool blankets. These alpaca blankets consist of natural shades and are made of 100% baby alpaca wool. These products are not painted or processed. In addition, these blankets are also warmer and heavier than the colored blankets. Curious about the woolen blankets? Take a look here!

Washing instructions

You would prefer to use your alpaca blanket 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, but that is of course not possible. At some point, it must or will be washed, but how do you do that best?

It is best not to wash the blanket but to let it air out. Alpaca wool is self-cleaning and by allowing the wool to air, any unpleasant odors will disappear. But if there really is a stain, it is wise to wash the blanket. You can do this in the washing machine on a wool or hand wash program, preferably no higher than 30 degrees. Use washing powder with a neutral pH value or wool detergent. You can use fabric softener, but it is not necessary.

If you do not trust to put the blanket in the washing machine, you can also wash it by hand. For a hand wash, use cold water and wool detergent. Use plenty of water and do not rub. You can use fabric softener for wool. Remove the excess water from the blanket with your hands, but do not wring. Rinse with cold water and pat the blanket with a dry towel until most of the water is gone.

Wool drying

Finished washing and then what? It is very important to know that your woolen products should never be hung up to dry! And never put in the dryer! Instead, try to squeeze as much water out of the blanket as possible and let it dry flat over a drying rack or towel. Ironing the blanket is not necessary.
