About the Sustainable Easy Wash process: Easy Wash is a sustainable anti-shrinkage treatment where enzymes eat part of the hair structure of the alpaca fibre that causes shrinkage. It is a sustainable and environmentally friendly process since no acids or hard chemicals are used that contaminate tributaries. Furthermore, the fibre is not covered with any resin, like it is done with the superwash wool treatment. Therefore the alpaca hair maintains all its natural characteristics.
