Wool needs a little extra care when washing! However 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. Ideally wash it as little as possible. Often hanging it outsides spraying it with a little mist for a day will freshen it up. It can be worn many times without washing and you can spot wash it if something has been spilled on it. It sounds strange but it works!

Care - Untreated wool brands: Engel, Selana and Cosilana are made of untreated merino wool which ideally needs hand washing. Wash very gently by hand in water that must stay the same cool temperature both for washing and rinsing. Changing temperature can shock the wool and shrink it. You should use a special soap for wool or shampoo. Stretch the wool into shape when wet, and pull lengthwise and lay flat to dry. 

Many people, including us wash untreated wool on a gentle cold machine washing on a wool or hand wash program. This is at your own risk and you need to be sure your machine actually washes and rinses at the stated temperature, 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, to prevent this happening stretch it lengthwise when it comes out of the machine and perhaps buy a bigger size than otherwise. If you use the machine to spin items, the revolutions must be below 400.

Stretch the wool into shape when wet and dry flat. Never wring it! Especially wool fleece can be destroyed by wringing!

We recommend washing all wool fleece by hand, gentle, no rubbing, squeezing or wringing. lay it flat on a towel to dry. Again often spraying a little water mist on it and having it out will help it self clean. 

Treated wool brands: Joha, Fub, Celavi, Misha and Puff can be washed on a cold wool program in the machine without any risk! Please use a wool detergent! Reshape and dry flat for the knitwear!
