CARE | In Transit Alpaca Cardigan

So, you've got yourself a stunning cardigan spun from the most luxurious mohair and alpaca yarn – talk about cosy perfection! Here's how to keep it looking and feeling fabulous:


We recommend hand washing your cardigan for the best results. Fill a basin or sink with lukewarm water and add a small amount of gentle detergent.
Gently submerge the cardigan in the water and give it a little swish around to distribute the detergent. Let it soak for about 5-10 minutes.
Rinse thoroughly with cool water until all the soap is gone. Avoid wringing or twisting the cardigan to prevent stretching.



  • After washing, gently press the excess water out by rolling the cardigan in a clean, dry towel. Be gentle – no need to wring it out!
  • Reshape the cardigan to its original dimensions and lay it flat on a clean towel to air dry. Avoid hanging it up, as this can cause it to lose its shape.
  • Keep it away from direct sunlight or heat sources to prevent any colour fading or damage.


  • When you're not wearing your cardigan (which might not be often, because who could resist?), store it folded neatly in a cool, dry place.
  • Avoid hanging it for long periods, as this can cause stretching. Instead, lay it flat or drape it over a hanger with padded shoulders to maintain its shape.
  • To keep moths away, consider storing it with cedar balls or lavender sachets – they'll thank you for it!


  • If your cardigan happens to get a little wrinkled, you can iron it on a low heat setting. Place a clean cloth between the iron and the fabric to protect it from direct heat.


  • Mohair and alpaca yarns are super soft, but they might pill a bit over time. No worries! Just use a fabric shaver or a gentle sweater comb to remove any fuzzies.
  • Take your time and be gentle – your cardigan will thank you for the extra love and care!

General Tips:

  • Avoid exposing your cardigan to harsh chemicals, bleach, or fabric softeners. They can damage the fibres and ruin that oh-so-soft feel.
  • Always check the care label.
  • And most importantly, wear your cardigan with pride! It's not just a piece of clothing; it's a cosy, luxurious hug waiting to happen.

With these care instructions, your mohair and alpaca cardigan will stay soft, lustrous, and oh-so-dreamy for many cosy seasons to come!
