Because Alpaca fiber is a natural luxury fiber, quality care will maintain the article you love.
It is recommended that you dry clean your alpaca products.
Natural fiber can be washed by hand if handled with care. If washing by hand use a squeezing motion in cool water with a mild detergent. We like to use Dawn. Rinse thoroughly, squeeze out excess water and roll in a towel. Spread the washed piece flat on a thick towel and shape to original size, allow to dry away from heat or sunlight. DO NOT machine wash.
Vacuum your rug with a smooth surface attachment. Spot clean with cool water and mild soap.
The entire surface may be shampooed with a mild rug cleaner.
