Everyday care will go a long way in maintaining your wool coats, and we would advise checking each item’s care label for specific washing instructions before attempting to launder. Wool is a soft, natural fiber that can be prone to shrinking if not cared for properly. The best way to care for wool will vary depending on the type of garment that requires cleaning. If your wool item is structured, such as a blazer, suit, or coat, then we recommend to spot clean. Otherwise, hand washing is often the safest way to treat wool, and requires lukewarm water mixed with a specialist wool detergent. Soak for up to half an hour, rinse well and press out any water without wringing. If you want to use the machine, make sure the item is turned inside out first, place in a mesh laundry bag and ensure a low-spin, cold-water cycle is selected. Dry naturally away from heat and strong direct sunlight. 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.
