Product Info and Care
Each item is hand knitted in pure unspun merino wool (23 micron), which is hand processed to make it as durable as possible whilst retaining its wonderful chunky softness. Processing involves lightly felting the items (with a combination of moisture, agitation and heat), which makes them durable yet still retaining the chunky softness of the wool. There may be a small amount of shedding as your item settles into its new home, but this will reduce over time as the fibres bond together.
Pilling will occur over time and with heavier use. This is a natural result of friction - as the fibres rub against each other, some gather into small balls that sit on the surface of the wool. You can remove any pills that appear over time by gently teasing off by hand and smoothing down the stitches, or with sharp scissors.
Do not machine wash. Blot any spillages with cold water, give it an occasional good shake and airing, and take for specialist cleaning only if absolutely necessary.
The magic of merino
Merino wool is an incredible material. It is naturally stain, water and odour resistant, and super soft and elastic. It’s hypoallergenic, naturally flame resistant and anti-static, so it doesn’t attract dust. It also dyes really well, which is why there are so many bright colours to choose from.
