Care Guide

Welcome to our easy-to-follow guide designed to ensure your woollen items remain in their best condition. Wool, being a natural and luxurious fibre requires a specific set of care routines and methods to maintain its softness, warmth, and durability. This guide will provide you with essential information and practical tips on wool care, from basic cleaning methods to advanced maintenance techniques including proper storage methods.


Before washing your blanket, it's worth considering a more natural, environmentally friendly approach. Simply let it freshen up outside for a few hours, allowing the fresh air to circulate through the fibres, effectively ventilating it and releasing any trapped pockets of air. Surprisingly, this straightforward process can often be all your blanket needs to regain its freshness


Recycled wool can be machine washed on a ‘wool wash’ setting at 30’C. Always wash with similar colours and use a mild wool detergent preferably ‘Woolmark’ recommended. If your washing machine does not have a wool wash setting, you can hand wash it. Fill a basin of warm water with gentle detergent and let it soak. Rinse the blanket in clean warm water, carefully squeeze the water out and then lay flat to dry.


Drying your blanket correctly is as crucial as washing it. The technique you employ can significantly affect the blanket's shape and texture. Hanging it up to dry, can lead to distortion, due to the weight of the water-soaked fibres so it's best to lay your blanket flat. Spreading it out evenly on a clean, dry surface allows it to retain its original shape and prevents stretching or shrinking.


Steaming is an alternative method for cleaning wool, proving to be both effective and gentle. This procedure helps to eliminate dirt, smoothing out creases, and killing germs, all without the need for harsh chemicals that could potentially damage the fabric or cause skin irritation. The steam penetrates deep into the woollen fibres, removing stubborn dirt and dust mites.


The formation of pills, or small bobbles, on wool is a natural occurrence resulting from friction and usage over a period of time. To get rid of these, you can buy a pilling comb and brush the blanket to remove the pills. We also suggest, as a preventive measure, to refrain from using any harsh chemicals that will break down the fibres causing the blanket to bobble more easily.


Planning to store your blanket for rainy days? Use a breathable, securely fastened bag. Prior to putting your blanket away, give it a gentle spray with a moth repellent, which will help protect it from any potential damage. You can also place mothballs in the storage area as an alternative. The storage area should be dark and dry to maintain the blanket's quality over time.
