Although we recommend that you have your fur/fleece product professionally dry cleaned, it can be successfully cleaned using talcum powder and a conventional wire pet brush! Shake talc over the fur/fleece and gently rub in deeply. Leave for 2 hours then brush away the excess and restore fluffiness. Should you accidentally spill liquid on the fur/fleece, cover with any powder to hand, eg bicarbonate of soda would be fine, to absorb as much of the liquid as possible. For stubborn stains, dry clean.
The best way to store your alpaca is in a breathable, sealable plastic bag in a cool place. Never put it away dirty as perspiration, hair gel and food stains etc attract moths. To guard against moths, we recommend Cedar chips or balls as cedar oil is a known deterrent to moths. Moths hate light and being disturbed. Their life cycle is about 21 days, so every month, we recommend you shake out your garment and leave in bright sun light. Larvae are strongly repelled by light, and will fall from clothing when they cannot find protection.
*Alpacas are not killed for their fur. The fur is mainly from baby Alpacas - or “cria” - which have died of natural causes as the weaker animals often perish in the harsh Andean winter. Alpacas can live for 20 years, promising a lifetime of shearing potential of far greater value than a single pelt.
