Washing and care

Bamboo baby tvattradWool has excellent natural dirt resistance which makes it unnecessary to wash it often. The wool cleans itself and it is repellent to dirt as the dirt stays on the surface due to the natural oils in the wool. A nice care tip is to let it air outside when the air is moist but obviously not raining. If you still need to wash the blanket/throw please carefully follow the instructions below.

Maintenance of natural wool blankets

After some time, natural wool can form burls (small balls of wool on the surface). The softer and finer the wool the more sensitive it is. Burls occur from wear so avoid strong abrasion on the blanket and avoid using it as a cushion or as the primary covering for a sofa.

One can remove the burls and get the blankets soft and fluffy once again easily by “rugging” them.  To “rug” a blanket you can use a steel comb or some Velcro.

Keep the Velcro vertical and hold it by both endings between your thumb and forefinger. Make sure that the “teeth” on the Velcro lie in the same direction as the way you intend to brush. If you are doing it right it will be easy to brush.

  • Brush in long even sweeping movements. Do not brush too hard or you will lose too much of the wool.
  • Cover the blanket bit by bit and it will become soft and fluffy on the surface.
  • To finish just hang it out to air.
