Wool garments should preferably be hand-washed in cold water.
If you choose the washing machine, make sure to select the ‘wool’ program at a maximum temperature of 30 degrees, do not spin or wring.
In both cases, turn the garment inside out before washing to avoid pilling.
Do not wring wool garments.
Always dry them lying horizontally.
Wool should be ironed inside out once completely dry.
It would be advisable to always avoid contact of the iron with the fabric, using only steam.
If this is not possible, place a cloth between the iron and the garment so as to obtain an ironing effect without the direct contact with the plate.
Taking care of wool garments is very simple.
Pilling is a direct result of friction. It naturally occurs with movement, so the more you wear an item, the more likely it is to pill.
Pilling can be avoided by simple gestures. Wash the garment as often as possible, wool loves water! Sheep live in difficult conditions, outdoor and often under the rain. Getting wet the fibres react by loosening while, when they dry, they return to their original state.
You can eliminate pilling with a special brush, or even by hand.
Who has never dealt with stains?
It is better to act quickly, while the stain is still fresh.
With a cloth dampened in cold water (better if sparkling) and Marseille soap, gently dab the stain.
Leave to act and then rinse.
