Merino wool shrinks when washed, and fixing merino wool shrinkage isn't easy, but it can be prevented altogether. When washing, always pretreat stains with Stain Solution or the Wash & Stain Bar. Focus on susceptible areas such as underarms, necklines, and cuffs.
Stain Solution is ideal for protein and tannin stains, such as wine, coffee, ink, grass, urine, blood, and old, set-in stains such as pit stains.
The Wash & Stain Bar works the yarn to remove dirt, grease, oil, and makeup.
Merino wool is odor resistant; however, if any odors appear, presoak the item for 30 minutes in cool water mixed with 1/4 cup of Scented Vinegar.
