Wool/silk is dirt-repellant and regenerates by airing. For wool and wool/silk, we recommend washing by hand or possibly machine washing (please follow instructions below). In any case, you should use a wool detergent because these do not contain any enzymes (protease), are pH-neutral and protect the fibre. Do not wring or rub it, because then it can become felted.
Briefly swirl around a little in plenty of luke-warm water, squeezing gently, using a mild detergent specially designed for wool, then rinse in water of the same temperature. Please do not put in the tumble drier or on radiators as this will make the wool hard, brittle and felted.
We recommend squeezing the products in a towel after rinsing, pulling them into shape while wet and drying them flat.
Please do not: Rub, wring out or spin, expose to changes in temperature (first warm water then cold, or vice versa), soak
Please select the Wool Wash/Hand Wash programme. Use the "Cold” setting for temperature in the machine and this will keep your wool garments soft, elastic and absorbent. With machine-washing too, it is very important that the temperature is the same for both washing and rinsing and that you check that a low spin speed is either part of the programme or can be set manually – max.400 rpm.
You should also use a wool-wash detergent for machine-washing, as silk and wool are protein fibres which should basically be cared for with products in the slightly acid pH range (below 7 pH value). These products do not remove the natural oil and protect the fibres at the same time.
