caring for your Woolerina clothing
The team at Woolerina, through their knowledge & experience, have selected the best fibre possible to be used in the Woolerina collection. This selection process ensures not only the highest quality, but also versatility and most importantly durability. With appropriate (& not too complex!) care, your Woolerina garments will give you a great deal of wearing pleasure!
Regular airing of your garments will keep them smelling fresh & reduce your washing.
Woolerina garments can be either laundered or dry cleaned (‘P’ cycle) We recommend our products be machine washed on a gentle cycle (or hand washed) in warm water up to 40°c. You should always use a wool approved detergent. Dry in shade. Do not bleach your Woolerina garments as these products will destroy the fibre (this includes NapiSan!).
Do not tumble dry your Woolerina garments. Wool will dry weight for weight quicker than cotton & if your garment is a little damp when you put it on, it will dry from your body heat & will not make you cold; it will actually generate heat from being wet!
Use a steam iron on medium heat with a damp cloth.
Knitted garments should be folded not hung. Always store in a dry place & ensure products are clean before storage as clean garments are less susceptible to attacks from moths. Your woollen garments should always be stored with a moth deterrent – Woolerina recommends natural products such as fresh bay leaves or whole black peppercorns (yes, the ones from the supermarket!). A few fresh bay leaves or mesh bag of peppercorns should be layered between your garments. These products are completely safe to you and your garments. Should you wish to use naphthalene, always place the flakes or “tablets” in the top of the storage area as the chemical gas they emit is heavier than air.
