Washing and caring for wool
Cashmere might be the most delicate material of them all. In return it is amazingly soft and super comfortable. Other kinds of wool are frail, too, so please always be careful when cleaning this material in order to avoid felting and shrinking. But don’t sweat it. If you care for wool and cashmere correctly you’ll take much pleasure in them.
There is no need to wash wool; you can just air it if it’s stinky. Small stains can be removed by hand with mild soap. In case of necessity we have some washing tips. But as always: Read the care label first.
It’s best to wash wool cold, with mild detergent, preferably by hand. Alternatively you could wash the material in a gentle cycle (wool wash cycle). Be careful and do not put a lot of pieces into the washing machine. Avoid garments with sharp applications such as zips or metal buttons.
Don’t squeeze or wring wool and avoid hanging it in order to keep the structure and form. Let it dry when laying flat on an absorbing surface (such as a towel on the floor).
Iron or steam wool cold.
