High-quality pieces that are made from wool require a little care and maintenance to keep them looking their best. To keep your wool knitwear looking as pristine as possible, we advise checking each item’s care label before cleaning, with most pieces dry clean only, hand wash or machine washable. The first step in taking proper care of wool garments is to always turn inside out before washing, which will help slow down any pilling or wear of the fabric. If your wool item is structured, such as a blazer, suit, or coat, then we recommend to spot clean. As wool has a tendency to shrink when exposed to high temperatures, always use cool water when hand washing and a gentle cycle on the machine. Ensure a neutral, mild detergent is used, and avoid any bio detergents containing enzymes or bleach. 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. Turning wool garments inside out and gently reshaping before air drying flat will keep them in tiptop condition. Hang woven wool garments on padded hangers, and fold knitted pieces away in drawers. All wool knitwear may pill after a few wears, but these small bobbles can be easily removed with a pilling comb.
