Hand wash max 30°C:
If your washing machine has a so-called "cradle function" on its wool or hand wash program, it works great to wash your garment in the machine. If the washing machine doesn’t have a cradle function, it’s better to wash the garment by hand to be sure it wont be damaged.
Delicate wash max 40°C:
Can be washed in a washing machine, choose the program delicate wash.
Wash your wool garment with a detergent adapted for wool. Regular detergents contain substances that break down protein and fats, which means that it breaks down the good quality of wool that you want to preserve.
Tip! Do not wash too many garments at the same time in the washing machine as friction can cause the wool to shrink. If it is a thinner/more sensitive wool garment that you are going to wash, it may be a good idea to put it in a laundry bag or in a pillowcase to protect the garment from the hard drum.
