The first wash
To get the right fullness in the wool, we recommend soaking your finished Organic Wool product in min. 10 minutes at max 30 degrees hot water. The work is then dried as explained below.
The following washes
We recommend hand washing as the wool programs of washing machines are very different. If you have a good washing machine with a gentle wool program, you can wash your Organic Wool product in the machine.
- Use only a little wool detergent without enzymes.
- Use laundry bag, max 30 degrees and 800 rpm.
Wipe flat on (e.g. a towel) and slide your knitted / crocheted work into place.
The wool can stretched a lot in washing but will contract giving the right fullness when dried flat and blocked to measure.
