The rule of thumb for all pure wool products is to wash in cold water and gently wring or use the delicate cycle and low spin on your washer. It's no longer necessary to handwash woolen items, as most washers now have a delicate agitation cycle and low spin feature. Heat can and usually does shrink woolens, reducing them in size and ruining their appearance. Cold water and gentle washing will help keep your woolens in good condition.
We are recommend you can use for your woolen washing, specially formulated detergents like LANOLIN will further protect and keep your woolen products looking terrific. I've used LANOLIN for years and highly recommend it for all your woolens and delicate fabrics.
You can wash woolen 1-3 times per year.
Lanolin is the smelly pale-yellow natural oil found on sheep’s wool. As a waste product in wool processing, it's also known as wool oil, wool wax, wool fat, or wool grease. It's a natural water-repellant, the function of which, it's not too hard to guess, is to waterproof the sheep. Lanolin also has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties that protect the sheep's skin from infection.
