65% alpaca and 35% wool.
In this blend, the yarn retains the softness and insulating properties of the alpaca fiber, while the wool provides lightness and elasticity. Both alpaca and wool have good heat-regulating properties.
For machine washing, we recommend that all wool garments be washed separately on a wool program, to ensure the gentlest treatment. Centrifuge well and dry the garment flat, preferably on top of a towel. Never use a laundry bag when washing hand-knitted wool garments. This creates friction that can cause the garment to felt.
