How to care for your alpaca

All our Alpaca knitwear and yarns are made by ourselves in our textile studio based on the Mornington Peninsula.  We use the fabulous fleece of both our own Alpacas and also from local farms.

Hand-washing is the gentlest method of cleaning an Alpaca garment, and will add years to the life of your Alpaca knitwear and yarns.

Here is a set of care instructions to extend the life of your alpaca products. 

Follow these four simple steps and your Alpaca purchase will give you years of luxurious comfort and wear.

  1. Gently wash in warm water with a mild shampoo and conditioner together and thoroughly rinse in water of the same temperature. Special care must be taken, as wet Alpaca fabric can weaken and stretch out of shape. Never wring or twist. Gently press excess water from garment.

  2. While supporting the weight of the wet garment lay it on a dry towel. Ease the garment back into shape and roll up in the towel. Press to remove excess water and repeat this step with a second towel.

  3. On a flat surface lay the sweater on a fresh, dry towel, until thoroughly air dried.

  4. Once your Alpaca garment is dry you will want to fold it carefully, avoiding a center crease. Never hang an Alpaca sweater as it will stretch the garment out of shape. Lay flat in a drawer or on a closet shelf.

Damaged/Missing Goods

Please allow the maximum delivery period before contacting us about a missing order. Please note we do not take responsibility for lost items in the post.

A request to do so must be made in writing to us at . If the parcel is determined by Australia Post to be lost, they will refund/reimburse us and we will pass on that refund/reimbursement to the customer. We will not supply replacement parcels free of charge. Customers can place and pay for a replacement parcel and are responsible for any shipping costs.

Note that all items sent by parcel post or express post with Australia Post will have tracking numbers sent.  Should you require your order sent by Registered Post, it is your responsibility to let us know by email after you place your order on the website.

Product Advice

 Due to the nature of the products that we sell there may be variations in the end result, therefore we suggest you take the following measures:

  • always sample before starting your project

  • order enough material to complete your project

Whilst we are happy to give advice on our products and their use, we cannot accept responsibility or liability as conditions of use are beyond our control.


Colour Charts

The colour palettes featured on this web site are as accurate to actual product colours as possible, however due to different screen settings and resolutions it is impossible for these to be 100% accurate. We recommend that you purchase a sample of the colours you require should your project be critical to avoid any colour inaccuracy issues. Once again, always buy enough for your project as colours vary from batch to batch.

Fibres which have been dyed by us, are never exactly the same, which gives them that uniqueness.  Usually they are unique batches and never repeated.


Overseas Orders

We do ship outside of Australia and are always adding more countries to our shipping page at checkout. Please note that an extra charge may be levied as import duty or other taxes for products shipped outside the Australia. These charges, or any other issues as a result of import legislation are the responsibility of the purchaser. Also note, overseas orders are free from GST and the full GST amount will be refunded after the order is placed.
