Merino Kids product care

How to wash and care for your Merino Kids products:

Hand wash

For hand washing, just wash it in clean, lukewarm water ( approx. 30 degrees Celsius). Allow to soak for 10 minutes before rinsing thoroughly firstly in lukewarm water, then in cold water. Hand washing can also enable a residual build-up of odour. 

Machine wash

For machine washing, close any zips before you pop in the machine, turn the wool cycle on and make sure it is set to 30°C max. Merino Kids recommend using wool detergent as regular detergent will damage your garments over time.


Merino wool naturally repels water and will dry super quickly in a natural environment. Where possible we recommend that garments are dried flat or gently hung.

Stain removal

Rub liquid wool wash with baking soda, water and a few drops of lemon, then rub gently onto the stained area. Leave for 15 minutes and then proceed to wash as per instructions.

Odour resistant

Merino fibres have the characteristic of drawing moisture away from the body and either absorbing or releasing this moisture, which eliminates clamminess and ensures that the garments remain odour-free. Hanging in fresh air can refresh items without the need for washing.
