When it comes to a fabrics like wool, it is important to care for it properly to keep it in good condition. We would always recommend always following the washing instructions found on the item’s care label. Depending on the item, it is simple to spot clean or washable by hand or in the machine. Most wool is washable, with the main exception of structured pieces like suits, jackets and blazers, which are best spot cleaned. When you hand wash, make sure you use a gentle, low-alkaline detergent and cool water. Press out the excess water, but do not wring the wool item to prevent the fabric from stretching. To prevent shrinkage, it is advised to soak your garment in cold water before placing it in the machine. Avoid tumble drying, as it can cause shrinkage, ruin the look of the fabric or become damaged. Never hang when wet as this can ruin the shape, and place away from direct sunlight and heat sources which can cause yellowing and damage.
