Easy Care: Regular airing will refresh your duvet, prolonging life and performance. For a more thorough clean, use the hand wash or 30 degrees wool cycle of your washing machine, using a wool care product only. When your machine has stopped you can run a slow spin cycle again to make sure most of the water is out. Do not leave the duvet in the machine for any length of time once the cycle has stopped. Take out the duvet, shake very gently into shape and hang up to air dry. Do not use bleach. Do not tumble dry. Do not dry clean.
Weight & Togs: Alpaca fibres are naturally excellent at insulating yet can also release excess heat. Therefore any tog comparisons are wide-ranging and unique to you, depending on your natural body temperature. See our guidelines below.
