Cleaning & Care

Thread + Butter Alpaca


With the right care and attention, alpaca products can last for years, even decades. See our maintenance guide below.

    1. To avoid permanent stains, any spills or stains should be removed as soon as possible.
    2. First, using a soft brush, brush any loose dirt from the surface of the fabric, following the direction of the weave. This can also be done using a vacuum cleaner (gently).
    3. Blot any excess liquid from the surface. Make sure not to rub the fibres, as this will make the stain worse.
    4. Using a clean, damp cloth or sponge, softly blot the stain area to remove any remaining dirt. Do not rub.
    5. Delicate professional dry cleaning is recommended for tough stains.
