As always, check the instructions on the care label before washing your garment.
Wool garments do not need to be washed after every use. The fibres have a natural protective layer and are resistant to dirt and dust. Simply air your favourite wool garments out after wearing to make them feel fresh.
Wool is best washed using the delicate cycle, also called handwash or wool programme, at a low temperature with a very mild detergent. Even 30° Celsius can be too hot for wool, so wash in cold water and spin at low speed (up to 600 rpm). We recommend putting your wool garment in a mesh washing bag to prevent snagging and felting.
Handwashing is also an option when washing wool. However, we recommend using the handwash cycle of your machine (see above) instead of manually handwashing because of the risk of damaging your garment. If you hand wash, use cold water, a mild detergent and very gentle movements. Be careful not to rub the garments intensely while washing. To avoid stretching the wool fibres, do not wring your wool clothes.
Dry your wool items by putting a towel underneath your clothes on your drying rack to absorb the excess moisture. To avoid stretching the wool fibres, do not wring wool clothes under any circumstances. Do not hang your wool pieces to dry, as they risk losing their shape.
Fold your wool pieces together and store them in a cupboard. Due to their weight, the items lose their shape when hung.
It can be a good idea to use a moth repellent as they like to nest in wool clothes.
Friction causes pilling on wool products. To remove any build-up, simply use a pilling comb or lint razor.
