How to Care for Wool

What is Wool?

Wool is a natural fiber obtained from sheep and other animals. Known for its insulation properties and breathability, wool fibers are crimped, elastic, and can retain a lot of air, which contributes to its warmth.


Wool garments don't need frequent washing due to their odor-resistant and breathable nature. For a light refresh, air-clean them by laying flat overnight. For more thorough cleaning, hand wash in cold water using an eco-friendly wool detergent. Avoid strong chemicals and rough treatment.


To dry wool, avoid wringing or hanging. Lay the garment flat on a towel, roll gently to absorb excess water, then reshape and lay on a dry surface. Keep wool away from direct heat sources to prevent shrinkage.


Iron wool garments on a medium setting if needed, checking the garment's care label first for specific instructions.

Pilling and Pulled Yarn

Wool can pill with wear. Remove pills carefully and repair any snags to keep your wool items looking new.

Preventing Insect Damage

Wool attracts insects like moths. To avoid that store wool in airtight containers or garment bags with natural repellents like cedar or lavender to prevent damage.

Proper care and storage of wool garments ensure they remain an integral part of your wardrobe for a long time.
