Oldest boy

Cold washing

Wool can easily deform if it is not carefully washed. Worse, it can shrink by several sizes. Therefore, always handle your woolen materials with great care and make sure it really needs to be washed. Unlike cotton and synthetic materials, wool does not need to be washed frequently. Just ventilate your clothes after wearing them.

Most woolen clothes can be machine washed with the special wool program. However, hand washing is preferable because it is softer. Use a detergent specially designed for wool (like Woolite) so that your garment remains soft. First mix the detergent in water to avoid stirring the wet wool. The heat, the movement and the detergent are the enemies of the wool, so let soak and rinse well. Immerse the garment and gently press it so that the foam comes out. Rinse abundantly with fresh or cold water.

Spread the garment on a towel, wrap it like a rolled cake, gently press to remove the water. Unroll and dry it in the open air. Do not suspend your woolen clothing to dry it, it would lie down and lose its original shape. Rather dry it horizontally on a towel, keeping the natural shape of the garment.
