Caring for wool

Special characteristics of wool 

The air permeability of wool products is as much as 86 percent. It allows to maintain a comfortable temperature while sleeping. Wool reacts to changes in human body temperature and retains heat as much as needed. Therefore, it helps to preserve comfort in both warm and cold weather.

Woolen products are hygienic because of the antibacterial properties provided by lanolin. Which is a natural fatty substance secreted by sheep skin that helps protect from infection. Therefore, wool is perfect for people who have a tendency to allergic skin or respiratory diseases.

Wool is sustainable, environmentally friendly. After serving, it can be returned to the soil, where it decomposes quickly and 100% naturally. It gives its useful substances to the earth.

Care of Wool Products

Wool is distinguished by the fact that it naturally preserves cleanliness, does not absorb extraneous odors, controls moisture and is resistant to stains. These properties mean that the wool is easy to care for and does not require frequent washing.

The wool product is usually enough to ventilate in the fresh air, protecting it from direct sunlight. When washing or cleaning wool products, it is important to use the most natural detergents for wool.

Washing

Hand wash: Do this in water (up to 30C) and use only mild detergents for wool products (these are marked with the Woolmark mark). Rinse well and do not wring hard.

Washing in the washing machine: if you choose this method, set the washing machine program with the wool label. If this is not indicated, then choose a gentle washing mode and a temperature no higher than 40 C. Woolen products can only be drilled in slow motion or with a specially designed program.

Drying and Ironing

A natural drying method is the most suitable for wool. Direct sunlight should be avoided, as it negetevly affects the wool fiber. Woolen products can not be ironed.

Holding

As the weather warms, woolen products become less useful, so it is important to protect them from moths at that time. To provide protection against pests, wool blankets or clothes should be washed and cleanly packed in airtight containers, boxes or bags. And add dried lavender flowers to the wool fabric. Lavender emits a pleasant smell and effectively repels moths. When properly cared for, wool products can last for decades.
