Caring for Your Alpaca Throw Blanket

Caring for your alpaca blanket is essential to maintaining its luxurious softness, durability, and exquisite craftsmanship.

Alpaca blankets, known for their fine softness, are a testament to the meticulous artistry that goes into each piece. Crafted in our Main Street studio by a skilled Nantucket weaver, these blankets are made from the finest alpaca fibers sourced from Peru, a country with a rich alpaca heritage.

Alpaca blankets are slightly heavier than other textiles, providing a comforting weight that enhances their warmth and comfort. This unique characteristic makes them a favorite among Nantucket Looms employees and anyone who has experienced their enveloping embrace. The durability and breathability of alpaca fibers ensure that your blanket will remain a cherished item for years to come, offering warmth and a touch of elegance to any room.

To preserve the beauty and integrity of your alpaca blanket, it is important to follow proper care instructions:
Dry Clean Only: Alpaca blankets require dry cleaning due to their fine craftsmanship and the delicate nature of the alpaca fibers. This ensures the blanket retains its softness, color, and texture, safeguarding its quality and extending its lifespan.
Professional Dry Cleaning Recommended: For cleaning, take your alpaca blanket to a professional dry cleaner experienced in handling luxury textiles. This ensures your blanket is treated with care and expertise, maintaining its pristine condition.
Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Do not use harsh chemicals or detergents on your alpaca blanket, as these can damage the fibers and diminish the blanket's natural beauty.
Gentle Maintenance Between Cleanings:
Gently shake the blanket outdoors to let the fresh air renew the fibers.
For small spills or spots, lightly dab the area with a damp cloth without rubbing the fabric, to avoid damage.
Allow the blanket to air dry naturally, away from direct heat or sunlight, to prevent shrinkage or fading.
