All wool is washable, you just need to know how to handle it properly to keep its softness and longevity. How we dry a washed wool product is also very important. Do not wash your wool unless absolutely necessary. Like all soft furnishing products, wool loves fresh air and a light breeze so if you think your wool product needs freshening up, try hanging it outside for a few hours on a nice day but keep it out of strong sunlight.
Cold Machine-Washing Wool
When washing a wool product in an automatic washing machine please use the delicate programmes – cold wash, wool wash, hand wash, no more than 30 degrees – and wash on its own (1 throw per wash), not with any other items. Please do not use a powder detergent, just liquid. You could also use special wool fabric softeners, but only a very small amount and rinse your throw thoroughly afterwards as leaving some of the softener in the item could cause stains, unpleasant odour or provoke allergies.
Cold Hand Washing Wool
For smaller items like little blankets and cushion covers you may want to wash them by hand. Fill a bathtub or large bucket with lukewarm water, add some mild soap suitable for washing wool and leave your wool item to soak for about an hour. After it has soaked gently rub any soiled parts using another part of the throw or cushion cover. When it has been washed all over drain the water then refill with clean water and leave to soak for another 15 minutes – you can repeat this several times until you are happy all of the soap has been washed out. Then follow the recommendations below for drying.
Do Not Bleach Wool
Please do not bleach a wool product as it will destroy the wool fibre and will spoil your woollen item.
Do not tumble dry your wool product. Instead we advise you to lay it flat to dry. When you take the item out of the machine, or have finished hand washing, it will be quite wet so gently squeeze out any excess water (do not wring!). Lay it down on top of a cotton towel on a flat surface, smoothing out any wrinkles (if it is a large item then fold it carefully to a quarter of the size). It is essential that the item is placed on top of an absorbent material, such as a towel, as the moisture from the wool will be absorbed downwards. Change the towel underneath regularly until the wool is completely dry (if the weather is nice this can be done outside but remember to keep it out of direct sunlight). Do not shake or hang a wet wool product as this could cause damage.
You can gently iron a wool product using the steam settings on your iron. Do not press too hard, to keep the softness, and use a mid to low heat setting.
Dry Cleaning Wool
If you are not confident to wash wool yourself then we advise you to use a dry-cleaning service.
By following these recommendations, you can enjoy the lasting quality of wool for many years to come.

Meet The Designer
“My love affair with wool is never-ending. It started as an intriguing friendship when, at university, I was first introduced to its magic. As often happens, the friendship developed into a tentative romance, as the delicious possibilities of weaving and textile design were laid out before me. After university, during my time as textile designer with a well – established company, this fledgling love took flight. Breathless, I realised that I was in the throes of an enduring passion.”
