About the fabric used in Alpaca Varsity Cable Knit Sweater:
We combine textile heritage and global trends with alpaca—a raw, sustainable, and luxurious fiber—to make our designs unique.
Alqo Wasi is devoted to creating timeless and authentic pieces made of luxurious alpaca fiber blends. Alpaca wool, one of the world’s most luxurious fibers, is a jewel amid all the synthetic fibers and harsh materials found in our everyday lives.
Softer than cashmere and warmer than merino wool, alpaca fiber is naturally lightweight, hypoallergenic and serves as a natural thermostat by using microscopic air pockets to trap body heat in cooler temperatures and to release heat in warmer weather.
Washing Instructions for Alpaca Varsity Cable Knit Sweater:
Hand-washing is the gentlest method of cleaning an alpaca garment. Follow these four steps and your purchase will give your four legged companion years of luxurious comfort and wear.
1. Gently wash in warm water with a mild soap or shampoo and thoroughly rinse in water of the same temperature. Specialcare must be taken as wet alpaca fabric can weaken and stretch out of shape. Never wring or twist. Gently press excess water from garment.
2. Lay it on a dry towel. Ease the garment back into shape and roll up in the towel. Press to remove excess water and repeat this step with a second towel.
3. Lay the sweater flat to dry on a fresh, dry towel, until thoroughly air dried.
4. Never hang an alpaca sweater as it will stretch the garment out of shape. Lay flat in a drawer or on a shelf.
If stains persist: Dry cleaning may be the only solution.
We do not recommend machine washing. In the event you decide to use washing machine please secure the garment in a tied pillowcase and set on gentle cycle; cool water. Do not use drying machine.
Sweaters and dresses Size Chart:
In order to calculate your pooch’s size, you’ll need to measure your dog’s length from
the base of the neck to the base of their tail, which serves as the primary measurement
in our clothing. The neck & chest measurements, as well as the breed guide provided
in the sizing chart, will help ensure you select the correct size for your dog in the
particular product style you desire.
About the designer Alqo Wasi:
ALQO WASI means “Dog Home” in Quechua, the language of the Incas. It all started in 2005 on one of the countless family adventure journeys along the Peruvian Andes. They had already been in a bus for 4 hours and had 2 more hours to arrive at the imposing presence of the great Colca Canyon and had to come up with an idea of a business for a university thesis. Suddenly, it just popped into their mind. They had been looking for clothes for Paco and Lua, their two little spoiled and pampered Westies, and nothing was good enough for them.
As we were sitting by the bus window, just kept watching these incredible landscapes in the middle of what we call the sierra; they were covered with these incredible creatures, the Gold of the Andes. Alpacas, llamas, guanacos and vicuñas grazed freely in the vast highlands of the region at more than 10,000 feet above sea level. From time to time they stopped in little villages were native communities are known for their incredible weaving and natural dying techniques. The weaving loom is used since pre Hispanic times and artisans from the Andean region apply ancestral techniques of spinning and dying to make diverse textiles.
After some time, they decided to take the risk. So was created a company that could give our babies a sophisticated and one-of-a-kind piece of work, and at the same time help a great cause.
In 2013, Gloria a sweet mini Dachshund became part of our family.
