Washing technique

Dry cleaning is recommended for wool and suiting. Give wool garments a 24-hour rest between wearing.

Use shaped or padded hangers for suits, leaving lots of space. In general, wool fibres will shed wrinkles and return to their original shape. Fold knits, empty pockets, remove belts and hang with closures zipped and buttoned.

Refresh wool garments quickly after wearing or unpacking by hanging them in a steamy bathroom. Moisture from the steam will remove wrinkles.

If wool gets wet, dry the garment at room temperature away from heat. Use a nap for brushing, if available.

Brush wool to remove surface dirt particles. Use a damp sponge for knits and finer fabrics.


Always steam when pressing wool. Use the wool setting on the iron. Avoid pressing wool when it is completely dry.

When possible, press on the reverse side of the fabric. When necessary to press on the inverse side, use a press cloth to avoid shine. Lower and lift the iron, don't slide it back and forth. Prevent imprinting inside detail by placing a piece of brown paper or tissue paper under folds, seams or darts.
