Caring for your Wool

Your fibre is coloured with a colour fast dye and has been rinsed thoroughly before you receive it. However, some slight bleeding can still occur with stronger colours. To help prevent this, when you wash the wool, add an acid to your final rinse. This can encourage the dye to lock further into the fibre. I use two tablespoons white vinegar or citric acid (less smelly) to four litres of water.

When you need to wash your fibre, we recommend gently hand washing in lukewarm water with a very small amount of pH neutral wool wash. Rinse with lukewarm water and lie it flat to dry in the shade.

Always be gentle with your fibre. Never twist or wring.
