We created our Cashmere and Wool Detergent so that you can feel confident washing your most delicate knitwear at home! Crafted with our proprietary formula and delicately fragranced with Himalayan Cedarwood and Orange Oil, this will leave your knitwear refreshed and nourished.
Machine Washing Wool
If you are machine washing your cashmere and wool, make sure your machine is on a wool or hand wash cycle. Always wash on a cold wash, with the the temperate being around 30 degrees to avoid shrinking, and use our specialist wool detergent to protect your woollens even more!
Hand washing wool
If you are able to hand wash, then follow this guide to hand washing knitwear at home:
2. Turn the garment inside out, gently submerge it and agitate the water with your hands to distribute the soap and water. It is normal for a little dye to be released. Soak for up to 30 minutes.
3. Rinse with fresh water until the garment is free from soap and then gently press between your hands or against the sink.
4. Absorb excess water with a towel and leave to dry flat on a drying rack.
To summarise, wool and cashmere can be delicately hand washed at home with the right product and technique. In fact, we believe that washing your knitwear at home can provide better results than dry cleaning, and will prolong the lifespan of your favourite garments.
Give your garments some love by hand washing with our Eco Wash for Cashmere and Wool.
