Caring for your garment
Cool wash by hand or on the wool/silk/delicates cycle of your washing machine
Use a pH neutral soap:
a detergent designed for delicates, an olive oil soap or even baby shampoo will work well. You can use fabric conditioner, or hair conditioner works well on silk or wool.
Do not dry clean , do not soak,
do not tumble dry.
It’s important to dry wool or knitted garments flat, and ease into shape as they dry. Iron with a moderate iron.
Wool jackets can be difficult to iron. Although
they shouldn’t be dry cleaned, they can be taken to the dry cleaner to be steam pressed for a professional result.
Special note about indigo : until it’s been washed a few times, the
colour may run, or rub onto pale coloured fabrics. Wash separately for the first few washes, then wash with like - coloured items
Do not hang in direct sunlight for long periods of time or they might fade.
of course it's OK to wear them on sunny days, but don't leave them in the conservatory or on the parcel shelf of your car for days, and don't hang wallhangings in full sun - teat them as you would a watercolour painting
