Breathe in that fresh morning air; alpaca fiber and wool batting are both hypoallergenic, and the encasement has been micron-tested and impenetrable by dust mites. This combination creates an environment that is protected from dust mites and other allergens.
Alpaca fiber is hollow, which makes it one of the warmest natural fibers available. We blend this with sheep wool to create a gentle and airy filling that will keep you warm while it wicks away moisture. So you can sleep at a comfortable temperature without the discomfort of night sweat.
Sleep easy at night knowing that the animals who helped to create your pillow are raised in a pesticide-free environment and that their coats are a natural renewable resource. No chemicals, bleaches, or dyes are used in processing our wool; and the fabric encasement is 100% organic cotton, so you may give back to the planet with a completely bio-degradable piece when you are done with it.
With proper care, your alpaca wool comforter will provide a lifetime of comfort. For daily use it is recommended that your comforter remains covered with a duvet in order to protect it from soil, perspiration, and wear. Occasionally leaving your comforter in the sun will help the wool to naturally re-loft and air out, keeping it fresh and clean.
We recommend washing your alpaca comforter as little as possible. Cleaning greatly increases the amount of wear and shortens the lifespan of your investment. If you chose to wash your alpaca wool comforter it is important that you do not allow the product to be agitated, as it shrinks and felts the wool.
Front-Load Washer (Recommended)
Choose the “ultra-hand wash” or “wool wash” cycle of your washer, then choose “light.” Use cold water and a mild natural soap. When your machine stops you may run it again on a spin cycle to ensure most of the water is out. Hang your comforter to dry. Do not put this product in a dryer! Dry Cleaning is not recommended.
Fill your machine with cool water and cleaner. Add your comforter, let it soak for 5-10 minutes, and then plunge it up and down by hand to clean it. Turn the dial to “spin,” and spin the water out. Allow the machine to fill up again for the rinse, but be sure to stop it before the machine begins to agitate. Plunge up and down again, then turn the dial to “spin.” Hang your comforter to dry. Do not put this product in a dryer! Dry Cleaning is not recommended.
