Washing Your Wool Garments
Wool is certainly a miracle fiber. Not only is it warm as toast, it has insulating qualities in hot or cold weather, and whether it's wet or
dry. Wool will not burn. It has a wonderful elastic memory, which is
why your garments will revert to their original shape after washing.
Wool wears like iron, and can be passed down from generation to
generation, as long as you follow a few simple rules:
- Always use the same temperature water for wash
We like luke warm.
- Just SOAK your garment. NEVER agitate a
unless you want it to felt.
- Spin garment out in washing machine, carefully
lay flat on towel, adjust and smooth and let air dry. (Never let your
wool garment agitate while in washer, as that is a recipe for
disaster. Enjoy knitting with Decadent Fibers custom hand dyed yarns!
