Merino Care & Benefits
Merino garments are designed to be easy care. Merino is naturally stain & odour resistant, so it is not necessary to wash after every wear, unless your little ones has an obvious spill or smear (And let’s face it, toddlers can get messy). A simple airing of the garment should suffice between a wear or two.
After the first 2-3 wears, we recommend you wash the garment separately to remove the short fibres that can cause pilling.
As with all wool garments, the best way to maintain their lifespan is to hand wash using a mild wool detergent. However, we understand that life gets very busy, especially with little ones in tow, so machine washing is absolutely acceptable, although it is necessary to use a mild wool detergent.
For the best results, please ensure you follow the instructions below:
- Use warm or cool machine wash on a normal cycle or a wool cycle if you have it. max 30oC
- Use a mild WOOL detergent
- Wash like colors together (e.g. separate lights and darks)
- Close all zippers
- Line dry garments – DO NOT tumble dry.
- Washing occasionally with denim (e.g. jeans with the zipper closed) or other coarse fabrics will help to remove any loose fibers i.e. pilling
- Do not iron prints or labels
- Do not use bleach or fabric softener under any circumstances
- Do not soak your garment
