Alpaca Headband Care

Alpaca Fur Headbands

Suggestions

  • Gripping the band and shaking before wearing will make the fur uniformly straight and luxuriant.
  • Avoid dry cleaning or washing with soap as these will strip the fur’s natural oils. Wipe instead with a damp, white muslin cloth, left, right, up and down in order that all faces of the hair shafts are wiped.
  • If the band is soaked in the rain, blot with a towel and leave to dry naturally away from sources of heat such as radiators. Once dry, fluff up using a fine pet brush or warm hairdryer jet to separate the hair shafts.
  • Store in a plastic bag with cedar wood to ward off moths and lavender to keep fresh.
  • To use the headband as a muff, position it vertically on your lap, slide your left and right hands in from the left and right respectively and simply twist so both hands are facing the same direction.
  • We wish you many cosy, warm winter days with your new headband.
