How to wash wool

Can I wash wool in a washing machine?

Firstly, you need to know that wool garments do NOT need to be washed often. Hang them outside or beside an open window for a few hours after wearing - that's all that's needed mostly. 

Wool wicks off sweat and kills the BO bugs.

But if you HAVE to wash it.....

Wool garments should be washed on the wool setting (usually gentle action at 30°C/ 40°C ). If your washing machine does not have a wool cycle, use the cold water wash or wash cycle for delicates. Please use Wool wash detergents.

To avoid shrinking, don't put wool clothing in the dryer.

Pills may occur after use
