The Best Ways To Care for Your Wool

Many people do not realise that wool, compared to synthetics is actually quite easy to look after. In particular, Merino wool is resistant to both odours and bacteria, meaning you do not need to wash it as often as you may with synthetics.

Airing merino garments overnight will usually freshen them for the following day. When you have to wash your wool, you can either use a washing machine, hand wash with ease or dry clean. No matter what, it’s essential always to read the care label on woollen products for ultimate care and ensure your product’s longevity.
