Caring for your garment

Be gentle with your precious garment. Every RUANA piece is made of delicate alpaca fiber and therefore needs special care. Keep in mind that alpaca is an anti-bacterial, odor-resistant and stain-resistant fiber that does not need to be cleaned often. Our MUNDO by RUANA collections are made with natural materials only, such as organic cotton, pima cotton, linen, tencel and vegetable viscose. 

(Hand) washing and drying your garment


Washing by hand is recommended for all our alpaca knitwear. Use cool water and a mild cleanser such as shampoo. Avoid twisting the garment and use a towel to remove excessive moisture. Reshape the garment and lay flat to air dry. Note that using your washing machine's hand wash cycle is NOT recommended as your garment will be likely to shrink. Using warm or hot water will cause your garment to shrink too. 

For all other knitwear made of natural materials such as organic cotton, hand washing is also recommended. 

Wash your pima cotton, tencel, linen and vegetable viscose items on a delicate cycle with cold water. 

Keep in mind that all our collections are made of natural materials only, which require less washing. 


Ironing your garment


All our garments can be ironed at lower temperature. Use a cloth or handkerchief between your iron and the fabric for all alpaca garments. 

Removing stains

If your garment has a stain, we suggest taking it to a professional dry-cleaner and informing the staff about the stain that needs removing.
