First of all, consider just airing the garment, instead of washing it. If you still desire to wash it, here are some guidelines:

  • Machine wash superwash treated wool - separately - using a wool/gentle cycle program at 40ºC with a light centrifugation (about 800rpm), and wool detergent without enzymes or optical brighteners.
  • Don’t use fabric softener with superwash treated yarn.
  • NEVER leave the garment to soak/wet in the washing machine for a long period of time.
  • To dry the garment, shape it and lay it flat - do not hang - ideally on a warm bathroom floor or on top of a drying rack in a room with good air circulation. Never dry the garment in direct sunlight.
  • Don’t tumble dry.
  • Never iron the garment directly. Use always a damp cloth between your steaming iron or regular iron and the garment.

Note: If you are washing a project made with this yarn combined with another, the general guideline is to follow the washing instructions for the most delicate of the yarns you are working with.
