We strongly recommend you to wash your wool products infrequently, as the wool is naturally self-cleaning. We recommend hanging it out for aeration instead of washing the wool in the machine. This way you save both the environment and preserve the quality of wool longer. The Merino Wool fibers are naturally fragile in such a fine quality and need to be handled with care.
If you find a stain on your wool garment, it’s important that you remove the stain as quickly as possible to avoid anything sticking. Steer clear of the washing machine and spot treatments. Instead, hold the stain under running, lukewarm water until it disappears. Gentle for the wool, the environment and easy for you!
If the wool is so dirty that airing it out does not do the job, please wash them on a wool wash program on your machine in a washing bag and be sure to choose a detergent specially designed for wool washing. Fabric softeners or detergents with enzymes must NOT be used on wool.
To avoid scratches and holes, you should avoid washing it with sharp objects that have zippers, velcros and buttons. We recommend putting the wool products in laundry bags, and you will save wool from potential damage!
If you wash the wool on a delicate washing program with a wool detergent, the wool garment should not shrink. However, should you be unlucky, you can stretch the garment carefully after washing to retain the shape and avoid shrinkage.
