Merino wool by nature is self-cleaning and does not need to be washed as frequently as other fabrics. To refresh and reduce washing, turn garment inside-out and air often. It is not necessary to wash your Woolino garments prior to use.
Sleep Bags and Clothing
- Machine wash: Close zipper. Wash on Low, 100°F /40°C max
- Use wool or mild detergent.
- Line-dry clothing and blankets. Sleep bags can be tumble dried on No Heat or Air Dry settings.
Pilling is a natural process that is inherent in merino fabric due to the fact that merino is a staple fiber. The best way to avoid pilling is to wash a new merino wool product after the first couple of wears. The pilling will diminish over time and with each washing as non-tenacious wool fibers work themselves free of the fabric and break away.
Comforters and Pillows
We recommend using a duvet cover for the comforters and a pillowcase for the pillow. That way you only need to wash the duvet covers and pillowcases.
Spot clean when possible. Sponge-off small, lightly soiled areas and towel dry where necessary, or wash on Low (80°F) using a wool or mild detergent. Do NOT use soap or washing powders containing enzymes or bleach. Do NOT tumble dry. Dry-cleanable.
To freshen up the comforter, expose it to direct sunlight and fresh air for a couple of hours every few months.
