With proper care your alpaca wool comforter will provide a lifetime of comfort. For daily use it is recommended that your comforter remains covered with a duvet in order to protect it from soil, perspiration, and wear. Occasionally leaving your comforter in the sun will help the wool to naturally re-loft and air out, keeping it fresh and clean.
We recommend washing your alpaca comforter as little as possible. Cleaning greatly increases the amount of wear and shortens the lifespan of your investment. If you chose to wash your alpaca wool comforter it is important that you do not allow the product to be agitated, as it shrinks and felts the wool.
Choose the "ultra-hand wash" or "wool wash" cycle of your washer, then choose "light." Use cold water and a mild natural soap. When your machine stops you may run it again on a spin cycle to ensure most of the water is out. Hang your comforter to dry. Do not put this product in a dryer! Dry Cleaning is not recommended.
Fill your machine with cool water and cleaner. Add your comforter, let it soak for 5-10 minutes, and then plunge it up and down by hand to clean it. Turn the dial to "spin," and spin the water out. Allow the machine to fill up again for the rinse, but be sure to stop it before the machine begins to agitate. Plunge up and down again, then turn dial to "spin." Hang your comforter to dry. Do not put this product in a dryer! Dry Cleaning is not recommended.
