FAQ´s ABOUT WOOL CARE
CAN I USE SOFTENER?
We do not recommend the use of fabric softener, bleach or bleach.
The use of fabric softener coats the fibers and will reduce their natural abilities to breathe, absorb and control moisture.
CAN I USE BLEACH?
We do not recommend the use of bleach or bleach.
Using bleach or bleach destroys the fibers. Please keep it away.
CAN I PLACE MY ANDINA OUTDOORS PRODUCTS IN THE DRYER?
You can put your socks in the dryer.
However, for greater durability, we recommend the use of a gentle spin and drying under ventilated shade.
CAN I IRON WOOL PRODUCTS?
Alpaca wool recovers its shape easily after washing, you may not need to iron anything at all.
We recommend leaving your garment hanging naturally or over the back of a chair.
Products that are made of 100% wool can be ironed at a low temperature. It is better that the product is ironed on the reverse side.
Garments that are made with wool and a mixture of synthetic fibers should not be ironed.
We recommend the use of steam for ironing.
Be sure to check the care label on each garment.
CAN I DRY CLEAN MY WOOL CLOTHING?
Some Andina Outdoors garments are suitable for dry cleaning. Check your label for dry cleaning possibilities and instructions.
Please note that dry cleaning reduces the life of any garment.

CLOTHING, ACCESSORIES AND SMELL
