Handwash only or use a dry cleaner that has the properties and care requirements needed to wash Icelandic wool. Use lukewarm water and a special wool soap. Do not use any soap that contains dyes or perfumes.
- Soak the garment for about 10-15 minutes. Do no rub or wring. Rinse thoroughly in lukewarm water.
- Squeeze as much water as possible and then wrap it in a towel and squeeze again. Do not wring or rub the garment.
- Lay the garment flat out on a towel and pull gently into shape. Do no hang your Icelandic wool sweater, since the weight of the water will stretch the wool. Best course of action is to fold the sleeves across the body of the sweater, so they don’t stretch.
Icelandic wool needs rare washing due to its natural anti-bacterial abilities.
