Alpaca Yarn and Tension Squares


Care Instructions

Hand washing: Use lukewarm water and a specialist wool detergent. Hair conditioner in the final rinse will add extra softness. When washing and rinsing squeeze the garment rather than rubbing. Gently squeeze out excess water before rolling in a towel. Lay flat to dry.

Washing machines: Modern machines with special wool wash cycles will also be fine but it is always advisable to check first by washing a tension square and then checking the final dry size.
