53% Cotton, 30% Baby Alpaca, 9% Polyamide, 8% Wool
1 - 5 years to biodegrade depending on the colour and treatment of the yarn, the synthetic portion will remain anywhere from 20 - 200 years
What we love:
- Harvested entirely by hand, making the fabric extra durable. Because of this durability, the garment will naturally have a longer lifespan.
- Alpacas don't overgraze and their droppings act as a fertilizer to keep their land happy and healthy
- 'Farm to garment' which dramatically reduces the carbon footprint
We recommend using a dry cleaner to handle your Alpaca knit sweater. And opt for a fabric spray to freshen your knit between wears. All sweaters pill no matter what, so have a sweater stone or fabric shaver ready. Always fold sweaters instead of hanging them, since hanging will warp the fabric over time.
