Engel is one of the original champions of untreated organic merino wool clothes. The wool comes from Merino sheep kept in their natural environment, organically farmed and therefore living a healthy and stress-free life. The usage of pesticides is forbidden both on pastures and on animals. All of Engel’s products are organic (GOTS certfied) and produced in Germany. All the dyestuffs used are free from heavy metals and free from harmful AZO-dyes. Please note that Engel is priced according to size. The merino is untested and needs to be hand washed or washed on a cold program in a machine you trust.
Wool needs a little extra care when washing! It is not a fibre like cotton, it repels dirt and is self cleaning and does not need to be washed as often as cotton. Often hanging it outsides for a day will freshen it up. You only really need to wash it if something has been spilled on it. It sounds strange but it works!
Untreated wool brands: Engel, Selana and Cosilana are made of untreated merino wool which ideally needs hand washing. Many people wash it on a gentle cold machine washing on a wool program. But you need to be sure to trust your machine and it is very important to use a wool detergent! If you are planning to wash it in the machine it may shrink a bit length wise, so you may want to buy a bigger size than otherwise. Stretch the wool into shape after washing and dry flat. Never wring it! Especially wool fleece can be destroyed by wringing!
I recommend washing all wool fleece by hand, gentle, no rubbing, squeezing or wringing. lay it flat on a towel to dry.
Treated wool brands: Joha, Fub, Celavi, Misha and Puff can be washed on a cold wool program in the machine without any shrinkage! Please use a wool detergent! Reshape and dry flat for the knitwear!
