With temperature regulating properties a wool blend can take you easily from summer to winter - making this yarn a great all rounder. Plus, they are naturally moisture-wicking, breathable and have great self-cleaning and odour-neutralizing properties.
Our special Superwash Wool is soft cushy without being itchy or thick. With all the temperature regulating qualities of wool, these blends are great for warmer climates too. They can handle well the delicate 30° cycle on your machine.
All our wool is ethically produced in Europe and mulesing-free. Our durable and resistant boiled wool and snugly merino fleece are GOTS-certified by CERES-082.
Wool does not need regular washing because of its self-cleaning and odour neutralizing properties. Airing or brushing it will often suffice. Its natural wool fat (lanolin) is also working well against moisture and water. Washing on a reliable wool & silk cycle using a suitable wool/silk detergent is perfectly fine, too. After some washes, the lanolin can wear out. To refreshen its perfect properties and to make your wool more durable or more water repellant, you can follow our instructions on how to easily lanolize your wool items.
How to lanolize wool
This is how you lubricate your wool fabrics using wool grease/lanoline:
1. Your wool fabric should be freshly washed and still wet.
2. Dissolve one tea spoon of wool grease in a bit of hot water.
3. Add some drops of baby shampoo or rinsing agent and stir. The emerging emulsion should look milky.
4. Infuse with approxiamtely 2 liters of warm water and lay your (partly) woolen product into the emulsion for at least 4 hours. We recommend to leave it over night.
5. Subsequently, you can spin the fabric in your machine on low rotational frequency. Then lay flat to dry.
For a bigger amount of fabric, you will have to adjust the amount of water and lanoline.
Please do not combine light and coloured wool products when washing or lubricating them.
