To keep the comfort and excellent quality of alpaca products, we suggest the following:
The best way to keep your alpaca product intact is to hand wash it. To keep it from shrinking you must avoid hot water and wringing.
Wash your product with cold water and use a mild soap or shampoo; fill up a basin with cold to slightly warm water (85º F). Add a small quantity of baby shampoo and wash it without rubbing strongly.
If you wish to maintain its color and quality avoid washing machines and the use of bleach.
To avoid your alpaca product from loosing its shape, press slightly to remove the water. Never wring. Do not use a drying machine. Dry flat, reshaping the product and keeping it from direct sunlight.
It is best to not iron any alpaca product unless necessary. In that case, to avoid direct contact with the iron, place a towel in between to protect the wool.
Make sure that your product is completely dry before putting it away. Fold it carefully avoiding wrinkles.
In some climates moths could cause a problem. If this is your case, place your alpaca products in plastic bags with small scented bags. DO NOT use mothballs.

Hat Size Reducer
Gamboa Panama Hats come with a size reducer band to make your hat fit perfectly.
This is how it works:
1. Only use them if the hat runs a little loose.
2. You have to put the bands inside the hat, just under the sweat protecting band.
3. Put one band in front of the other.
4. Place them when there is extra space:
- If the hat runs a little longer, you will have to attach the bands both on the front and the back.
- If the hat is a little bigger, you will have to put the bands on both sides.
Panama Hat Grade
Panama hats are made of fine straw fibers woven into a tight mesh. The amount of straw fibers woven in one square inch is called grade and it identifies the quality of the hat, the higher the grade the higher the quality of the hat.
