How to wash down products

Close all zippers and Velcro fasteners. Remember to remove the alpaca fur before putting the coat in the machine (the fur cannot be washed). Use about a third of the usual amount of mild detergent, or preferably a special down soap that can be purchased in most sports stores.

Wash at 30 ° C on a gentle cycle. Rinse the product at least five times to get rid of all detergent. The product should not be in the centrifuge for more than thirty seconds before it is placed directly in the dryer. NB! The product must be dried immediately after it has been washed in a machine. If the product lays in water it will start to smell. Set the dryer to the lowest temperature and make sure that it does not exceed 50 ° C.

To ensure that the down does not lose its insulating quality, you should add three to four tennis balls in the dryer. Take the product out of the dryer every twentieth minute.

Please note that it takes a lot of time before the product is completely dry.

Note: The alpaca fur must be removed before washing.
