Merino care tips: washing and drying

Caring for your precious merino wool garments is essential to maintain their quality and longevity.

By following simple yet effective care routines, you can ensure your investment lasts for years to come. 

Storing Merino Wool: 

To safeguard your merino wool from damage, store it properly. Regularly vacuum your closets to prevent moth infestations, and store your merino garments in plastic containers to deter moth holes. 

Washing Merino Wool: 

When washing your merino wool, use a gentle machine cycle and a wool-approved detergent.

Washing your garments inside out can help reduce pilling. 

Avoid soaking, bleaching, wringing, or dry cleaning merino wool to maintain its integrity. 

Hand-Washing Merino Wool: 

If you prefer hand-washing or lack a gentle wash cycle on your machine, follow these steps: 

  1. Fill a laundry sink or bucket with lukewarm water and wool-approved detergent. 
  2. Submerge the merino wool garment and gently agitate it in the water, avoiding soaking. 
  3. Rinse the garment carefully with fresh lukewarm water. 

Drying Merino Wool: 

Sun drying can cause discoloration in merino wool. Lay your freshly washed merino wool flat on a surface away from direct sunlight for optimal drying. 

Removing Stains from Merino Wool: 

Avoid soaking or bleaching merino wool, even when dealing with stains. Instead, dab the stained area with a cloth soaked in a wool-approved detergent. 

Follow up by washing the garment as usual, and the stain should disappear. 

By following these simple care instructions, you can keep your merino wool garments looking and feeling their best for years to come.
