Winter is the best season for wool clothing and as a material it insulates well and absorbs moisture.

When cared for properly, wool is a very long-lasting and functional garment, both outdoors and in everyday life.

Wool is a dirt-repellent material, so it does not need to be washed often. You can freshen your garment by airing or steaming it.

  • Freshen wool garments primarily by airing them
  • Clean stains locally
  • When the garment needs washing, wash the garment according to the instructions on the label, either by hand or on a gentle programme
  • Use a mild detergent made for wool


Almost all woollen knitwear will develop a lint at some point in its life, especially in places that are subject to heavy rubbing. This can be prevented by brushing and can be easily removed with a lint cutter.

  • Use a lint brush or a lint cutter to remove lint from wool garments
  • Prevent lint by brushing with a gentle clothing brush
  • After brushing and lint removal, it is a good idea to finish the woolen garment by steaming

  • Store your wool garment in an airy, dry place and away from pests
  • Thin knitwear will keep well on a hanger during active use, but heavier knitwear should be folded on a shelf to prevent the fabric from stretching
  • For longer-term storage, woollen garments should be folded to avoid stretching
