On color: since linen picks up color differently than silk and alpaca (since it is a cellulosic fiber, not a protein fiber), the result is a subtle marbling effect that produces a wonderful depth of color.
Baby alpaca with linen and silk
Baby alpaca wool with linen and silk is a combination of natural fibers that offers a number of unique benefits. This mix of materials provides a soft texture, lightness, freshness and a touch of rusticity. It is ideal for summer garments and accessories.
Baby alpaca is considered one of the finest and most luxurious fibers available on the market. Sourced from alpaca hatchlings, this fiber is exceptionally soft and lightweight, making it perfect for garments worn directly against the skin. It provides an unparalleled feeling of comfort and warmth, even in cold climates.
Flax, on the other hand, is a natural fiber obtained from the flax plant. It adds strength and durability to garments, making them ideal for everyday use. In addition, flax has thermoregulatory properties, which means it is able to keep us cool in hot climates and help keep us warm in colder climates.
Silk, known for its softness and natural sheen, adds a touch of elegance to the mix. This luxurious fiber is characterized by its ability to wick moisture and regulate body temperature, providing a cool and comfortable feeling at all times.
In addition, when these natural fibers are hand-dyed by hand with non-toxic dyes, unique combinations and shades are created, ensuring that each skein and ball of yarn is truly special and unique.
By choosing garments or yarns made from baby alpaca wool with linen and silk, hand-dyed by hand with non-toxic dyes, you can enjoy several benefits. These garments and yarns offer a soft, warm and comfortable wearing experience, thanks to the softness of baby alpaca and the thermoregulation of linen and silk.
Finally, by opting for toxic-free hair dyes, you can rest assured that you are taking care of your health and the environment at the same time.
READ ME. Important information:
You should keep in mind that artisanal dyeing is not like industrial dyeing. Batches are small, and the intensity and distribution of colors may vary from one skein to another. If you need the skeins to be from the same dye lot and as similar as possible, please write this in the order notes to take this into account.
It is also important for you to know that colors may look different on each screen and that the mix and distribution of colors you receive may differ from the photo because no two skeins are exactly alike.
In any case, no worries! Because if when you receive the skeins they are not what you expected, we will start the return process without any problem and at no cost to you.
When it comes to washing delicate hand-woven garments, it is important to take extra precautions to maintain their shape and quality, especially if they are woven with hand-dyed yarns.
- Hand wash:
- Fill a container with warm water and neutral soap or mild detergent specific for delicate garments or wool.
- Immerse the garment in the water and let it soak for 10-15 minutes. Avoid rubbing or twisting the garment, as this may damage the fibers and cause deformation.
- Careful rinsing: Rinse the garment with clean water several times until no detergent residue remains. Be sure not to twist it while rinsing it.
- Dry flat: Place the garment on a clean towel and gently roll the towel to remove excess water. Then, stretch the garment on a flat surface, in block form, to dry. Avoid hanging it, as this may deform it. Tends to shade, prolonged sun exposure can fade colors.
- Proper storage: After washing and drying, store in a clean, dry place. You can spray the garment with our mothproof perfume, gently fold it and place it in a breathable cloth bag.
