Caring for your Wool

How do I wash my woolly order?

At the Woolly Brand we like to make life as easy as possible, this includes where possible trying to make our items washing friendly. Ideally with all woollen products, hand washing using a gentle wool detergent and drying on a flat sun protected surface is best. If hand washing isn't your thing, no worries, check your woolly care tag and if it includes the a machine washing symbol then you are good to go on gentle wool cycle at 40 degrees celcius, just remember to use a gentle wool detergent.

How do I store my woolly order?

If you live down south like us you will likely not need to store your woolly items as they will be a regular on your little person, in the nappy bag or even your beach bag for use all year round. If you live in lovely warm climates and want to store your woolly items away from pesky moths and critters here is what you should do. Wash your woolly items and then pop in an air tight vacuum pack. Alternatively you can store them in a wool or 100% cotton storage bag, wrapped in acid free tissue in a storage container with a cedar block. Regularly check your woolly items incase those pesky critters have decided your items are the perfect snack and home.
