Caring for your wool

Washing

Before it is washed, we suggest the wool product is combed with a stiff clothes brush. This step is important in preventing the formation of pellets.
Hand-wash Icelandic wool products separately by soaking in cool water (not exceeding 30℃) for no more than 30 minutes. Only use detergents that are wool-safe and bleach-free.

Rinsing

Wool must be rinsed in the same temperature that it was washed.

Drying

A laundered jersey must not be hanged. Instead, it should be wrapped in a towel and squeezed until semi-dry. Then, it should be laid out on a flat surface and left to dry at room temperature. Knitted wool should not be dried in the immediate vicinity of a radiator and the sun. Once the item is dry, we recommend you comb it once more with a stiff clothes brush - this will make it soft and fluffy.

Please note: Products with natural fur and leather cannot be washed! Such shoes or other products should only be dry-cleaned. Adherence to these simple rules will preserve your favorite Icelandic wool garment for many years; its only drawback is - longevity.
