How to care for your AQVAROSSA piece
If you are not wearing your AQVAROSSA garment for a few months, it is best to keep it in a cool, dark and dry place. Ideally, the garment is dry-cleaned or washed by hand according to the instructions, before it is stored in a garment bag with moth repellent.
Knitwear is best laid flat to keep it in shape. Use the self-cleaning powers of our wool: simply hang up your pieces in the morning mist or in a steamy bathroom, and the natural fibres will clean themselves and make wrinkles disappear.

Liqueur, tea and white wine: Wash in warm water with gentle detergent.
Red wine: Wash in cold water, then soak in water with a splash of lemon juice.

Alpaca wool is unparalleled in its superior credentials across both quality and sustainability. Smooth and uniquely silky in texture it is softer than cashmere yet warmer and stronger than lambswool. The alpaca lives high in the South American Andes and has developed a fur with properties that are unmatched to protect against these harsh weather conditions. This means a wool that is not only insulating but also naturally water repellent, breathable and even hypoallergenic. The alpaca yarn we use is all sourced from individual farmers who rear small herds that are well cared for and sheared only once per year. They are sourced as part of a network that is both Fair Trade and WRAP certified, ensuring the wellbeing of animals, farmers and their environment.
Our knitwear is crafted in Peru by a company run by the amazing Mariela, a family business that was originally founded by her mother in the 70s. Their transparent and sustainable system has been a huge inspiration to AQVAROSSA on our journey, showing the possibilities of a close relationship between economic success and social responsibility. They are Fair Trade Certified with production taking place in Lima, Cuzco, Puno and forty small studios throughout Peru. They work closely with the small scale farmers whose alpaca wool they use and create jobs in otherwise remote regions. This ensures proximity to traditional craftsmanship and promotes the preservation of long held skills passed from generation to generation.
