If cared for properly, wool knitwear can last for years. We recommend checking the garment’s care label to ensure the cleaning method you plan to use will not cause shrinkage. 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. Most wool is washable, with the main exception of structured pieces like suits, jackets and blazers, which are best spot cleaned. Generally, most wool is washable and will need to be turned inside out before being washed at temperatures of 30°C or less using a specialist wool detergent. To prevent shrinkage, it is advised to soak your garment in cold water before placing it in the machine. Never tumble dry wool, instead dry flat away from direct heat or 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. Discover the new-season collection from Department 5.
