Fabric Care

Merino is a natural wool, which requires a certain way of washing to preserve its quality and lifespan. Here are some recommended ways on how you can do this;

Hand wash your Merino clothing in cold water using a gentle wool detergent. If you prefer using a machine, ensure it is on a gentle cycle with cold water, and use a laundry bag to protect the fabric from abrasion.

Stay away from bleach. Wool specific detergents only, as other harsh detergents can damage the wool fibers.

After washing, reshape your Merino tops and lay them flat to dry on a clean towel. If needed, gently squeeze the remainder of the water out of the fabric. Over-twisting can cause stretching or deformation. Keep them away from direct sunlight and heat sources like radiators, as excessive heat can shrink the wool.

When not in use, store your Merino tops folded or rolled in a breathable storage bag or drawer. Avoid hanging them for extended periods, as this can cause stretching and distortion of the fabric.

Merino wool is prone to pilling, especially in areas of friction. To minimize this, turn your clothing inside out before washing and avoid rubbing against rough surfaces. Use a fabric comb or a pill remover to gently remove any pills that may form over time.

If in doubt always follow the care label.
