Cleaning instructions

Wool is a natural living material. For it to keep its properties, it's necessary to follow a few simple rules :

Storage
Hanging storage is preferable, on molded or padded hangers so that the clothes keep their shape. It is also possible to store the clothes folded; it would then be necessary to let the garment breathe to remove the wrinkles.

Removing wrinkles
Wool can be dampened and hung up or even ironed with a warm iron (around 150°) on the reverse.

Cleaning
Dry cleaning is recommended

Protection
To combine practicality with pleasure, like many natural materials wool is susceptible to mites so it is possible to put a little lavender extract in the storage cupboard. If the smell bothers you there are other specific products sold in large shops.

The reaction is different and creates shrinking of the fabric.

Dust can be removed with a vacuum when the curtains are still on the windows.
