These super-soft mittens were knit for Ballintotas Alpacas by local artisan Kathleen Carty. They feature fibre from our herd, in DK weight, with an additional strand of lopi yarn carried behind. This makes these mittens more wind-resistant than a simple knit.
Due to the size variability common to hand-knits, it is best to try these on in-store to determine the best fit.
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.
