Care Instructions

ALPACA WOOL KNITS ARE VERY EASY TO CARE BUT WASHING IN MACHINE WE DO NOT RECOMMEND.
 

From the start Wølmark products do not need lot of care because alpaca wool is as its own really repellent for dirt and smells. Usually just a refreshing outside will do.

Our product especially sweaters only needs washing one or two times per year. Every time you wash your knit it will weaken the wool.

If there is a stain in the product which doesn't go away with a wet towel or other tool it is time for a hand wash. If the stain doesn't still go away it is time to take it to the professional wash.

Follow our instruction of washing it by hand. 

WASHING IT BY HAND
