Hand-Knit Alpaca Tams - by Kathleen Carty

These hand-knit 100% alpaca tams are knit for Ballintotas Alpacas by local artisan Kathleen Carty. Sizes, patterns, and weights of yarn vary. From boucle to alpaca-silk to alpaca-cashmere, these tams are best tried before purchase. 


Do not put alpaca in hot water, agitate it, or dry in a dryer or on a heat source.

Soak in room temperature water with gentle detergent or shampoo for 30 minutes, rinse, gently squeeze away excess water, and lay flat to dry.

Wipe soiled area with a damp cloth free from soap, and allow it to air dry. Gently brush fur when dry and shake to fluff.
