Alpaca scarves from Ecuador
You will not find the products from our webshop anywhere else in the Netherlands. The alpaca scarves are brought from Ecuador and personally selected by Rebecca. A strict selection on quality takes place. Only the most beautiful alpaca scarves can be taken back to the Netherlands. Rebecca also selects the products for her webshop on honesty; everything is bought directly from the local communities. When buying an alpaca scarf you therefore support the local population of Ecuador. You can also view many authentic beautiful products from Ecuador here, including plaids, ponchos, children's clothing and much more. But beware ... Once you have discovered the charm of Ecuador, you don't want anything else!
Wash alpaca shawl
You would prefer to wear the alpaca shawl 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, but that is of course not possible. Even though alpaca wool does not retain unpleasant odors, it can still happen that the scarf gets dirty and needs to be washed. Washing an alpaca scarf or wrap should be done with some care. You cannot throw the scarf in the regular laundry. In fact, it is better to wait as long as possible before washing your alpaca scarf. Does your scarf really need some washing? First read the instructions below for how to wash your alpaca scarf safely.
Wash alpaca scarves in the washing machine
If you want to put the scarf in the washing machine, put the product in a protective laundry bag. Use washing powder with a neutral pH value or detergent for wool. You can use fabric softener, but it is not necessary. Select the wool wash program at thirty degrees. Spin at a maximum of 500 revolutions.
Alpaca scarf hand wash
For a hand wash, use cold water and wool detergent. Use plenty of water and don't rub. You can use fabric softener for wool. Remove the excess water from the scarf with your hands, but do not wring. Rinse with cold water and pat the scarf with a dry towel until most of the water is out.
Drying alpaca wool
Never let alpaca wool dry soaking wet, the excess moisture can press out (but do not rub or wring!). Never put alpaca scarves in the dryer. Then you can say goodbye to your beautiful garment. Let the luxury scarf dry flat on a towel, so that its natural shape is preserved. Also make sure that the scarf is not in direct sunlight or over a heat source. Ironing the alpaca scarf is not necessary.
Do not wash, but air
Do you find washing your alpaca scarves exciting? The material does not naturally trap odors, so unless you really have a stain in your scarf, you don't really need to wash it. Much better for the material is to regularly air your luxury scarf. This way you can enjoy your beautiful alpaca scarf the longest. Do you have any questions about alpaca scarves?
