*Our star this time is a very clumsy Medium-sized Sandstone and has spilled Nutella, coffee, and multiple sodas on its thick layer of alpaca fleece. The whole cleaning process took 4-5 hours. Let's hope our star pays a bit more attention to her fluff next time!
*Sprinkle (organic baby powder)
It is a very easy process overall, but there are some small moments where it is always good to be a bit more careful with your fluffy friend.
- Rinse: never soak your alpaca completely, only use small amounts of water for cleaning. Too much water can damage the filling.
- Clean thoroughly: when soap is necessary, only use brands that are ecological and wool-specific.
- Brush: you'll notice that wet alpacas are a bit tougher to brush, so put your hand around the neck of the alpaca for extra support.
- Dry: be sure to shake and change the drying area often.
- Repeat brush: comb the wet spots first for a swift drying process.
- Dry: switch up the position of the alpaca often.
- Final brush: shake a few times; brush the final wet spots out of the alpaca fleece.
- *Sprinkle: we use organic baby powder for a nice scent.
- Shake: like a polaroid picture!
- Cuddle: whatever you do, enjoy your Inkari alpaca toy and have fun 😉
