TAKE CARE OF WHAT YOU LOVE
Once you have grown fond of something, you want to take good care of it. Because you want to enjoy it for a very long time. This is how many people feel about their favourite sweater, for example. It should keep exactly the colour you have fallen in love with and feel the way you are used to.
At ANNAMARIAANGELIKA we share this passion and want to fulfil this wish of our Slow Fashion lovers. Alpaca wool, which we transform from a robust and durable yarn into our garments, makes this possible.
But you can also do your bit to ensure that your favourite AMA pieces will give you pleasure for a very long time to come:
WASHING INSTRUCTIONS FOR YOUR ANNAMARIAANGELIKA PIECE
Basically, it is not always necessary to wash alpaca wool garments immediately. Less is definitely more. And not only because of the unnecessary water consumption. The wool fibres are self-cleaning and usually a good aring out is enough to be able to wear your favourite pieces again. But you can also hang them in your shower or bathroom after you have taken a shower. The steamy air also has a cleansing and refreshing effect.
When it’s time for the washing machine, wash the wool at 30 degrees with a mild wool detergent. Please do not spin or wring out. Instead, roll it into a large beach towel and gently squeeze out the water. As an alternative to machine washing, soak your items in some water and wool detergent and wash them by hand. Gently pull through the water, knead carefully and squeeze out the water. Done! For persistent stains, we recommend that you take it to your friendly neighbourhood dry cleaners.
Dry your alpaca pieces lying down and carefully pull everything into shape. Avoid direct sunlight. And your AMA garments should never see the inside of a tumble dryer. Once dry, steam the material with an iron. But please do not press down firmly, but hover about one centimetre above the wool – that is enough!
If they are going to be left in the wardrobe for a long time after drying, we strongly advise you to protect your clothes from moths. They love alpaca wool just as much as you and we do. That means: ventilate well, pack securely and add lavender or cedar wood.
