If like me, you’re a little nervous with merino wool, here’s a brief run down of how to make sure it gets washed properly.

1 – Read the label! If it say’s anything different to us, then take the label’s advice over ours!

2 – Fill the sink with hand warm water. Don’t put water in that’s too hot or you’ll shrink it!

3 – Use a product designed for merino wool – something like nikwax Wool Wash maybe more expensive than your usual store bought detergent, but then so was the merino wool garment. Failing that, you could use soap flakes.

4 – Agitate it real good.

5 – Rinse the item well a few times, again making sure the water is again only hand warm.

6 – Wring it gently and hang it on the line  to dry, away from strong sun. Don’t tumble dry or otherwise dry too quickly such as on a radiator or in front of a roaring fire.

Or…

1 – Bung in washing machine at 40°C on a gentle cycle.

2 – Hang it on the line  to dry, away from strong sun. Don’t tumble dry or otherwise dry too quickly such as on a radiator or in front of a roaring fire.

Whichever method, don’t iron. Not that it’ll damage the item, we just think ironing is a crime against humanity.
