Sheep wool is easy to keep clean. Wool is known to have antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, and is also breathable, absorbing perspiration and moisture while keeping the skin dry. Thus, it is not necessary to wash wool products often, in fact it is better for the environment to steam iron or air them. When needed to wash, wash by hand in cold water or in the washing machine, as long as you use the wool programme and keep the temperature at 30 degrees maximum. Use a wool detergent if wanted and do not centrifuge.
Flat dry the product after washing. The easiest way to flat dry is to lay the product on a flat surface with a towel underneath. Do not stretch the product and do not tumble dry.
IRONING / STEAMING
You can iron or steam the product, the right temperature is max 150 ° with the iron/steamer.
Pleas do not hang your item as the wool is heavy and it will thus loose its shape. If you have problems with moths, put the product outside when it is minus celsius degrees or you can put the product in the freezer for some hours.
The products will pill naturally after some usage. This is completely normal and due to the long fibre of the raw material. You can easily remove them by hand or with a thin wool comb.
