We are all very attached to the comforts of modern living, but please think before you put your wool cloth-stuffs in your washing machine. Fortunately, wool doesn’t require frequent washing, so an occasional hand-wash isn’t that much of a chore. Use cold water, but never warm or hot! If really needed, try lukewarm water. We advise you to use a special wool-wash detergent en instead of rubbing the fabric, just pinch and kneed it. Wool will last you a long time, but rubbing breaks the fibers and will make it deteriorate much faster. After washing, just rinse with cold water until all the soap is gone. Don’t let it soak for more than 5 minutes.
