Our Alpaca Fur Care & Cleaning Instructions...
A Gorgeous, Luxury, Low Maintenance Fur!
Your Alpaca fur rug may be brushed with a babies tight bristled tangle brush or a balled end plastic bristle hair brush. This works well if your fur rug gets matted from sitting or laying on it. We do not recommend using a wire pet brush. Brushing too hard using a wire pet brush will pull fur out and possibly rip seam stitching.
Should you wish to store your Alpaca fur rug, Store in a cool airy place. Use custom linen storage bag when storing your alpaca rug. The linen wicks moisture away yet lets your Alpaca fur rug breathe during storage. Storing your Alpaca fur rug in plastic bags for any length of time is not advisable. You want the fur to be able to breathe when being stored. Keep away from damp, moist environments.
Alpaca fur is not machine washable. Your Alpaca fur rug will need to be taken to a professional fur cleaners if it becomes soiled. For spills or spot cleaning, Use baby powder, cornstarch etc. to soak up liquid. Let dry, vacuum(with vacuum attachment) and brush out. Having your Alpaca rug professional dry cleaned is the most recommended. To freshen up your Alpaca fur rug on occasion, sprinkle baby powder over fur, brush in, vacuum out, shake out the fur and hang outside to air out. Alpaca fur has natural oils in the fur to insulate and protect. These oils act as a natural scotch guard and cornstarch or baby powder act as a natural dry cleaning solution. We recommend a natural dry cleaners. Reminding them, no liquid - light steam to clean. A quick brush with a hair brush after cleaning and your fur rug will be as beautiful as the day we delivered it to you.
