Care and Washing Instructions

Easy Care: Caring for your hand-woven 100% Shetland wool blanket

The Basics: When washing wool products, the important thing is to not agitate the wool, as this causes the fibers to mat together and shrink. Soaking and spinning, though, are fine.
 
Please Note:  Since wool repels dirt and smells, there are very few occasions that a wool blanket needs washing.  Most times, just hang out on the line for fresh air if necessary and it will be good as new.

Washing Instructions:

  1. Fill your machine with warm water and soap. Agitate the water to dissolve the soap.
  2. Stop the machine and add your blanket
  3. Plunge gently up and down by hand to clean.
  4. Let soak for 15 minutes
  5. Set machine to spin and turn it on, allowing the machine to spin out the soapy water
  6. Fill your machine again with warm water to rinse.
  7. Stop the machine (do not allow it to agitate the wool)
  8. Add fabric softener.
  9. Plunge gently up and down by hand to rinse.
  10. Let soak for 15 minutes
  11. Set machine to spin and turn it on, allowing the machine to spin out the rinse water.

Just Remember --. DO NOT agitate the wool!
