Garment Care

As wool naturally contains lanolin, it does not need to be washed as frequently 
as most other fibers or materials, or even at all, for the most part!
So, what is lanolin exactly?
Lanolin is a wax secreted by sheep that coats their fur, 
which then helps aid in keeping their fur water, dirt, and odor resistant.
Once the sheep are sheared and the wool is cleaned and then spun into yarn, 
the coating of lanolin still remain. 
The same properties of the lanolin also apply to the yarn, 
making it difficult for your woolen garment to absorb water, stains, and odors.
A quick spot cleaning with soap and lukewarm water 
should help remove any stains,
if they were to occur.
While the best cleaning method overall is hanging your garment out in the fresh air!
The wool will quickly release any odors, and they will be gone with the wind!

Alpaca, Mohair & Silk
Dry cleaning or handwashing these pieces are the suggested cleaning methods.
When handwashing, use lukewarm water and a mild soap.
Afterwards lay flat to dry, to best maintain the shape of your garment.

Loose Knit
We recommend handwashing your loose knit garments.
In doing so, be sure to take care, by handling your piece gently and delicately.
