Should you always hand wash your woollen items? Can wool only be worn in the winter? Is all wool itchy? It may be difficult to decipher between what is fact and what is fiction about woollen clothing, but we will guide you through some of the claims and reveal those that are myths.
”You can never wash wool in the washing machine” – and 4 other myths about wool, you probably believed.You’ve probably heard that wool is difficult to wash and believe that woollen clothing is just for winter and not summer. You may have also been told that you should be careful when dressing your children in wool as it is difficult to go back to other materials.
You may remember your woollen sweaters from when you were a child that were itchy and uncomfortable, but wool production has progressed since then and a lot of woollen clothing isn’t itchy. For instance, you can buy soft merino wool clothing from DILLING. The wool we use has undergone an environmentally neutral treatment to remove itchy hairs, providing you with luxuriously soft clothing. If you want an even more luxurious product, you can choose our wool/silk blend products. It is also worth noting that wool is less itchy when warm, therefore you might want to wear it for a few minutes before saying it is itchy and no good.
