We Love Wool

As the clocks have now gone back, there is no denying it is now officially winter time. So out come the lovely soft scarves and cowls.  As most of our winter warmers are made from 100% merino wool, we thought we might give you a few pointers on how to take care of your pieces.


  • Clean using a mild detergent in lukewarm water. Never use hot water as this shrinks wool. Also do not wring the piece as this will distort its shape.
  • To dry, lay the piece flat and reshape if necessary allowing it to dry away from direct sunlight and heat. Do not hang as wool can adsorb a lot of water this will cause the item to stretch from the weight of the water.
  • Do not dry in a tumble dryer as the heat will cause the wool to shrink.
  • Wool should be stored in an airtight environment which is cool and dry.
