Wool products will shrink when agitated in water. For best results, we highly recommend that you gently soak your alpaca products in cold water or a no-rinse wool soak. Roll it loosely in a towel to soak up the extra moisture (do not twist to wring dry). Once it is no longer soaking wet, reshape the garment and lay it flat to dry.
PacaNaturals was founded in 2013 by family-owned Abbott Farm Alpacas in Cumberland, Maine. At the farm, more than 40 Hucacaya alpacas are raised for their fine fleece. Farm owners Tom and Stacey have great admiration for and devotion to this unique animal with big, beautiful eyes and gentle demeanor.
All PacaNaturals products are handcrafted by local artisans, many from Maine. When you purchase a PacaNaturals product, you support local business, fiber growers, and artisans, too.
