Caring for Your Wool Products

Wool should always be hand washed. Wool fibres have many scales/cuticle cells that protect the outer layer of the fibre —machine washing can destroy the textile’s softness. Gentle hand washing will help prevent pilling and maintain your wool textiles in the best condition.

  • Soak the item in warm water and special wool cleaner.
  • Work the wool cleaner through the textile and avoid unnecessary stretching.
  • Carefully rinse through the item but do not ring out.
  • Reform the original shape, lay out flat and allow to dry naturally.

The Qualities of Pure Wool

Wool fibres are naturally breathable. They can absorb large quantities of moisture vapour and allow it to evaporate, making wool garments feel less clingy and more comfortable than garments or bedding made from other fibres.

Wool helps you sleep better. Using wool bedding improves the quality of sleep. Wool has superior thermal insulation, moisture transport and buffering properties compared with other fibre types, making it more comfortable to sleep in. This is particularly important with age because sleep quality and the ability to regulate body temperature decrease as we get older. Wool is naturally odour resistant and flame retardant. Wool fibres can absorb large quantities of water vapour – twice as much as cotton and thirty times as much as polyester – helping to keep the skin drier and prevent the build-up of sweat, bacteria and unpleasant smells. This quality makes wool textiles naturally flame retardant.

Protecting the Environment

Wool is environmentally sustainable. Carbon is a vital building block for life and for many of the products we use every day. Many textiles and fibres are made from carbon-based products, but only some, such as wool, are made from atmospheric carbon. By comparison, the carbon in the major synthetic apparel fibres, such as polyester or acrylic, is extracted from fossil fuels, releasing carbon stored millions of years ago. Wool is the most reused and recycled fibre of the major apparel fibres.

Wool is 100% natural, renewable and naturally biodegradable. Arguably the oldest known animal fibre, wool is composed of a protein called keratin which, like human hair, is produced from follicles within the skin of mammals. Wool grows spontaneously, without need for human intervention. When is fully disposed of, wool biodegrades acting like a fertiliser by slowly releasing valuable nutrients and carbon back into the soil. Wool also has a zero microplastic footprint.
