Washing instructions

 

Did you know that wool has good properties which means that you do not have to wash it as often. The wool is in itself dirt-repellent, ie. the dirt settles on the surface. This is because the wool contains natural fats. A tip if you want to freshen up the blanket is to air it when it is a little damp outside. In this way it "purifies" itself. If you still want to wash the blanket, please follow the washing instructions below.

Care instructions for wool blankets

All wool has a tendency to pick up gradually. The finer the wool, the more sensitive it is. Bumps arise from abrasion. This means that you should avoid too much load on the blankets, e.g. they are not suitable as a seat cushion or to dress the sofa with. To make the blankets soft and airy, rub (brush) them up. A blanket can be ruffled several times using e.g. velcro or a steel comb.

Hold the Velcro vertically and grip at both ends with your thumb and forefinger. The bend on the velcro "branches" should be in the same direction as you intend to brush. If you keep it right, it should be easy to brush, not choppy and heavy.

Brush the blanket from the inside out with long, even, sweeping strokes . Remember not to brush too hard - then it is easy to get caught and pull away too much of the wool fibres .
Pass the blanket piece by piece until it is airy and smooth on the surface . Finish by hanging out and carving the blanket .
