HANDWASH ONLY

DO NOT SPIN

DO NOT TUMBLE DRY

Merino Wool is the finest of wools making it extremely soft and beautiful to wear next to your skin. However, this product is hand made using wool in a very open fibre state. As with all woollen products, pilling will occur. This is not a defect but a natural result of friction. The good news is, if you’d like to remove the pilling it is easy to do! Hold the product firmly with one hand and with the other you can gently but assertively pinch each pill away and follow by stroking the stitch down to settle any fly aways.

CLEANING

Important! Please do not throw your wool products in the wash. Lanolin is the naturally occurring oil in the wool which makes the wool naturally stain and water resistant. So it shouldn’t require a regular amount of washing. However if you do need to clean your product, the best way to spot clean is by blotting with room temperature water on the spot and leave flat to dry in the shade. Or if you must wash the whole product, the same applies; room temperature water (as sudden changes in temperature causes wool to go tougher.) Put a little wool wash in a bucket and fill with room temperature water and swish around until mixed. Place your product in the water, pump the product gently in the water with your hands. Gently squeeze out the excess water in the sink and lay the product flat to dry in the shade. Allow a few days to dry, it’s chunky after all!
