Say “So Long” to Stains

How to wash a wool coat: Start with stains. Pretreat and clean areas of your wool coat like collars, cuffs, and underarms with the Stain Solution and work it into the fabric using the Stain Brush of your finger. To remove grease, oil and other hard to clean stains, use the Wash & Stain Bar. Work the bar into a lather using cool water, lay the coat flat, and apply directly to the stain.

Machine Wash

Bag it up first. Remove any detachable washable pieces like faux fur lining and hoods and insert into a Mesh Wash Bag. Turn the coat, jacket, or cape inside out and drop into the drum along with the Mesh Washing Bag containing any other detachable.

Select the Woolens, Delicate, or Handwash cycle on your washing machine and make sure the water temperature is cold and the spin is on low. Add Wool & Cashmere Shampoo considering the machine type and load size.

Take Your Time Drying

Never put wool in the dryer! Lay it in its natural shape to dry and remove pills using the Cashmere Brush for light-knits, and the Sweater Comb for heavy-knit items. 

Lay item flat in its natural shape on a drying rack or clean towel or hang to dry. When drying, avoid direct sunlight and heat sources, such as the radiator, because they can shrink or damage wool.

Steam it Up

Ironing can crush or flatten the natural pile of the yarns. Instead, steam clean your coat to remove wrinkles, odors, and help kill mites and bacteria.

Pills & Lint

Remove pills by gliding the Sweater Comb across pilled areas. Always work tools in one direction. Use the Cashmere Brush between wears to remove lint, fuzz, and hair and release natural oils that rejuvenate yarns.
