Merino is best hand or machine washed on a gentle cycle using an approved liquid wool wash in warm water with similar colours. Fabric softener is not recommended as it coats the fibre, reducing its natural ability to regulate moisture and temperature. We recommend drying in the shade and NOT using a tumble dryer. A cool iron if required, but do not dry clean. Allow 3-5% shrinkage, wash before use. Do not use bleach, nappy cleansing agents, garment brighteners or fabric softeners. Do not soak or spot clean.
