Spot the difference

I am often asked if you can machine wash alpaca knitwear; the answer is of course you can, but you might not want to.  The pictures below are of the Olivia Coat, one needs to be hand washed (as I’ve worn it most of this winter), the other has been washed at 40 degrees in a standard washing machine.



Your choice, but does anyone know a 3 year old who can take the weight of a seriously thick, unbendable coat?
