We always recommend handwashing Woollykins wool garments and knitwear. If using your machine only use cold and a gentle wool cycle - but all machines vary so be aware that shrinkage can occur.  

  • To handwash wash, pre-treat any stains with the Wash & Stain Bar by wetting the stained area and gently working the soap into the area with your fingertips. 
  • The proceed to handwash - Submerge in Luke Warm water with 2 capfuls of dispersed Cedar Wool & Cashmere shampoo.
  • Gently squeeze the washing water through the garment, paying attention to any particularly dirty areas to release any dirt or build up. Do not rub or soak wool for longer than 20 mins.
  • Rinse in clean water that is the same temperature as the wet garment and squeeze out excess water. If only washing one item, roll in a towel to remove excess water, reshape and dry flat. If washing many items, place all in a machine to SLOW spin only (no rinse) on 400 or 600 max revolutions. Then remove, reshape and dry flat.
  • Pull garments lengthwise while wet to help the knitted stitches go back to where they want to sit and retain the garments length.
  • Never use a dryer, dry over a radiator or dry too close to the fire as the heat will dry out the natural oils in the wool and it may become brittle. 

To Spot Clean an area: place a small cloth under the stained fabric and dampen the stained area - gently work the soap into the stain with your fingertips. When the stain is released, place a damp cloth on top of the area and blot the soap out repeatedly until it is removed. you may need to keep rinsing out your cloth. When the soap is removed, press the wet area between two dry cloths to remove excess moisture and dry flat.
