CALDEN WOOD AND ALPACA SILVER - Calden wood is revered for its strength and beauty while Alpaca silver has similar qualities making this combination of materials the ultimate choice for a yerba mate gourd.
THE “LA PAMPA” NAME - The Calden wood used for this mate grows in the La Pampa region of Argentina among the green fields that extend as far as the eye can see. The waves of the mate shape resemble the waves of the fields where the wood comes from.
HANDMADE IN ARGENTINA - The mate gourd is handmade in Argentina and each has its unique characteristics for you to make it your own
THE LA PAMPA GOURD - The gourd is about 3 ¼ in wide and 4 in high. It weighs in at 7oz and has a volume of around 6oz. The key material is Calden wood with an Alpaca silver base. Alpaca silver is made up of 60% copper, 20% nickel and 20% zinc. Alpaca silver is used throughout South America and renowned for its durability, malleability, and beauty. See the FAQs tab for curing and maintenance instructions for the mate.
THE YERBA CREW SILVER BOMBILLA - Made from stainless steel and 6.1 in (155mm) in length working perfectly with the size of the Yerba Crew gourd
THE YERBA CREW BOMBILLA CLEANER - Made from stainless steel and 7 in (178mm) in length with nylon bristles can be used to clean deep inside your bombilla when you do your periodic bombilla cleaning
WILL MY GOURD LOOK EXACTLY LIKE THE PICTURE? - Quick answer is “mostly”. We aim to keep the gourds about 85% consistent with the design but the handmade nature of the production allows for color and shape variations. Each gourd is unique and one of a kind.
HOW DO I CURE THE WOODEN GOURD? - We recommend filling the gourd with used yerba mate and letting it sit for 24 hours to create a proper seal. Alternatives are to rub whisky on the inside of the gourd and let it sit for 24 hours. After this 24 hours, you’re ready to go
HOW DO I MAINTAIN THE GOURD? - To maintain your wooden mate, try not to leave yerba in the mate once you finish drinking from it. Gently wash the mate and dry it after each use. Let it dry with the opening facing up to allow for good airflow. Do not leave it soaking in water to avoid splitting and mildew. After multiple uses, feel free to rub mineral oil on the exterior and let it sit for about 3 hours. Remove the excess oil after by gently wiping it down with cloth or a paper towel. Your mate will have a nice renewed shine.
