How to care for your Merino
We recommend that you wash after you
wear your Merino to keep it nice and fresh. Merino can be machine or hand
washed. We recommend hand washing as it is a gentler way to wash your garments
& kinder to the planet. Please use a liquid wool detergent as common
laundry powders can contain whiteners, which act like bleach. This can create
holes and ladders in the garment. Please do not tumble dry.
Hand Wash - Gently
hand wash in lukewarm water. Use only approved liquid wool detergent. Rinse
well. To get rid of excess water, do not wring, instead, roll your garment up in
a towel and gently press to absorb. Lay flat in shade to dry.
Machine Wash - Machine wash
in a cold. Use environmentally friendly approved liquid wool detergent.
Separate light from darks. Wash prints inside out.
Stains - Should you
find yourself dealing with a stain, immediately apply a solvent-based stain
remover such as eucalyptus oil. Apply it in small amounts, working inwards on
the stain to avoid it from spreading. Follow with a cold wash.
Storage - Our 100%
merino cardigans are a tasty treat for moth larvae and we highly recommend that
they are cleaned before storing. Merino garments are susceptible to moth holes
due to their natural fabrication. The larvae of the clothes moth only eat
natural fibres usually wool. If you find a hole appearing in your merino garments
it is maybe an indication of clothes moth infestation. Clothes moths are seldom seen because
unlike many other moths they avoid light. They prefer dark, undisturbed areas
such as wardrobes and tend to live in corners or in folds of fabric. Clothes
moth adults do not feed so they cause no injury to fabrics. However, the adults
produce eggs that hatch into the larvae which is what eats the natural fibres.
The best way to avoid clothes moths
is to store any merino in tightly sealed plastic storage bags or bins.
Alternatively, keep your closet open and move garments often as moths hate light
and movement. You can also use moth chemical traps where you are storing any
