  • Alpaca Care – Fur Items

  • Gripping the hat by the brim and shaking before wearing will make the fur uniformly straight and luxuriant.


  • The brim is not tacked and may be rolled down over the ears at the back if desired for added warmth.


  • Avoid dry cleaning or washing with soap as these will strip the fur’s natural oils. Wipe instead with a damp, white muslin cloth, left, right, up and down.


  • If the hat is soaked in the rain, blot with a towel and leave to dry naturally away from sources of heat such as radiators. Once dry, fluff up by shaking or using a cold hairdryer jet to separate the hair shafts, making them stand independently.


  • Store in a plastic bag with cedar wood to ward off moths and lavender to keep fresh.
