Wash and Care

MACHINE WASH

All our yarns are machine washable at 30°C but only with a wool program. Let the clothes naturally dry on a dry towel, so it can dry flat and in open air.

HAND WASH

If your washing machine does not have a wool program or if you prefer to wash your clothes by hand:

• Soak the garment in soapy water or a special detergent for wool. You can add a little conditioner, this will make the wool even softer.
• Rinse gently with warm water without twisting the garment.
• For pre-drying, wrap it in a towel and squeeze gently to absorb water without having to wring or twist.
• Then place the garment on a drytowel so it can dry flat and in open air.
