THE WOOL WE USE
About the wool we use:
100% incredibly soft organic merino wool.
KBT – Stands for controlled ethical treatment of the animals, sheep. No mulesing, pesticides nor artificial fertilizers used.
INV BEST and GOTS – International certificates for organic wool. The wool is washed with specific soaps approved for KBT certified wool.
Organic wool needs washing seldom, as the natural lanolin content provides self-cleansing properties, removing bacteria and odors. When needed, hand wash in lukewarm water (30 degrees Celcius). Rinse in lukewarm water (cold water can cause wool to shrink). Press out water in a towel. Give a quick, brisk shake for wool fibers to fluff. Dry on radiator or near gentle, dry heat.
Remember that it is important to use DRY heat for the wool to dry thoroughly. (Wool can absorb up to 40% of its weight in moisture without feeling wet).
