How to wash and care for your lambswool
Wool is naturally anti-bacterial and odour resistant and therefore does not need to be washed after every wear.
Hang woollen items to air between wears instead.
To wash, gently hand wash in tepid water with clothes washing liquid suitable for wool. Gently squeeze out excess water, do not wring.
Avoid fabric softeners as these coat the fibres and make them less breathable.
Do not machine wash, this will cause shrinkage and felting.
To dry, place item on a towel flat on a clothes airer either outside or near a radiator. Once dry, press into shape using a gentle warm steam iron. Do not tumble dry.
Pilling can naturally occur with wear and can easily be removed with a pilling comb.
To store, fold freshly washed items and store in drawers, with lavender bags and cedar wood balls to deter moths.
