Alpaca Fiber

For optimum upkeep your alpaca wool garments should be washed by hand or in a "Delicate Cycle", always using extra soft detergent.  The alpaca hair will get "undone", don't panic!  Use a regular clothing or shoe brush to comb it, always keeping in mind the direction in which the hair naturally goes.  Once combed, use an iron directly on to the product, this will fix the fiber and return the shine.
