Here are some commonly asked questions about how to care for your Merino clothing. But if in doubt follow the care label on each item.


Can I machine wash my Merino?

Yes, you can machine wash Merino tops, but do check the care label for the manufacturer's specifications first. If doing so it's important to use a gentle cycle with cold water and a wool specific detergent. Avoid using bleach or other non wool specific softener, and consider placing your Merino items in a laundry bag to protect them from abrasion.


How often should I wash my Merino?

Merino wool has natural antibacterial properties that help prevent odor buildup, so you typically don't need to wash it after every wear. Instead, air out your Merino tops between wears and wash them only when necessary or if they become visibly soiled or smelly.


Can I tumble dry my Merino?

No, it's best to avoid tumble drying Merino, as the heat and agitation can cause it to shrink and lose its shape. Instead, lay them flat to dry on a clean towel away from direct sunlight and heat sources.


How do I remove wrinkles from my Merino?

To remove wrinkles from Merino wool, you can steam the item lightly using a domestic iron on the wool setting, with a cloth placed between the iron and the fabric.


What should I do if my Merino gets stretched out?

 If your Merino top becomes stretched out, you can try gently reshaping it while damp and laying it flat to dry. Avoid hanging it while wet, as this can stretch the fabric.


How do I prevent moth damage to my Merino?

To help prevent moth damage, store your Merino in an airtight container or garment bag when not in use. You can also add cedar balls or lavender sachets to your storage container, as moths are repelled by these scents. Additionally, regularly airing out your Merino tops and keeping your storage areas clean can help.
