Product info and care

Wool and wool blends
We love wool fiber the way it comes off the sheep. We don't treat it with chemicals or heat to make it machine washable. We prefer to leave intact the little barbs that give wool its wonderful insulating, elastic, and felting qualities.

Therefore, we recommend that you handwash your wool project with gentle soap in cool water. Rinse it thoroughly and gently press out extra water and roll it lightly in a terry towel to absorb more of the moisture. Lay your project out to the correct measurements and let it dry naturally. If you want to speed up drying, aim a fan at the drying surface.

If you'd like to try machine washing, use cool water and a gentle cycle. After spinning, lay your garment flat to dry. And never, never put your knitted wool garment in the dryer.

Our linen yarn is machine washable in cold water. Lay it flat to dry and iron, if necessary, with a medium-hot iron. The more you wash a linen piece, the softer and drapier it becomes.
