- Do not iron.
When cleaning toys made with Alpaca fur or fibers, avoid using soap and water or even dry cleaning because these will strip the natural oils from the toy’s fur, Follow these steps instead:
- Use a light hairbrush (a pet brush is also good) and gently brush out as much dirt from the toy.
- Use a white muslin cloth to wipe and absorb water from the fur in case the toy got soaked in the rain or liquid was accidentally poured on it.
- Allow the toy to naturally dry, keeping it away from heat sources like a radiator. This usually takes about 24 hours for the toy to dry.
- After it fully dries, fluff the toy’s fur by shaking or using the cold setting of a hairdryer. Doing this will separate the fur shafts to make them stand out again.
**Follow the same instructions above for cleaning Alpaca fur pillow cases.
Make sure the toy is completely dry before storing it in a clear bag or clear garment box.
Place small lavender-scented potpourri bags in the storage bag or box to keep moths away. Mothballs are not recommended.
