Do you kill Alpacas for their skins?? No, never! We do not kill alpacas. No only every associated alpaca farmer would consider this a capital crime, but it would not make economical sense either. Every Alpaca will render more monetary benefit as a fiber provider, just in one single year! Then, you must take into account that Alpacas reproduce every year, faithfully, producing very valuable new members to any Alpaca farm. It would not make a lot of sense to kill them for rugs! Can you gift-wrap my item? Many of our items come with our standard gift wrap, free of charge. If the item will be gift-wrapped, please let us know and we will prepare it for you, however it will delay the delivery one day, you can even add a special message that will be handwritten. We are happy to provide you with a unique gift for that special person.

How can I clean, or wash my product?Please read care instructions :
Alpaca Fibre Care and Washing InstructionsWoven alpaca products should be dry cleaned. Knit ware can be hand washed.
When washing natural fibre products, do not agitate as this causes matting, felting and shrinking. Temperature control is necessary. Changing from hot to cold can cause felting and shrinking. Washing in hot water is fine as long as you do not rinse in cold water. Never put natural fibres in a dryer unless felting is the desired result.
If you wish to dry clean items, then consistently dry-clean. Do not use both methods.
1. Fill machine with warm water and soap.
2. Agitate the water to dissolve soap.
3. Stop the machine and add item.
4. Plunge gently up and down by hand for several minutes.
5. Let soak for 15-20 minutes.
6. Gently rinse by hand.
7. Remove item. Repeat process and add fabric softener if desired.
8. Lay flat to dry.
