Caring tips for your lambwool beanie / headband
How to take care of your Lambwool beanies /-headbands
To keep your beanies and headbands in good use for as long as possible, you should take good care of your items.
Wool repels dirt and therefore often mere airing of the product is sufficient. However, if the woolbeanie or -headband gets dirt or stains that you want to wash off, here are some tips for washing:
- Individual stains should be treated immediately by washing by hand with lukewarm water. Many stains tend to adhere firmly to the fiber when reacting with wool. Do not rub or twist the beanie, but squeeze gently. The wool product must also not be soaked.
- A special wool detergent can be used for hand-washing, but washing with detergent is not always necessary. If you use wool detergent, dissolve the detergent thoroughly in water and remember to rinse thoroughly.
- Flatdry the beanie horizontally so that the beanie does not lose its shape, stretch too much or shrink. You can lightly squeeze the water out of the wool between a terrytowel, so the beanie dries faster.
- Do not use a tumble dryer or drying cabinet, and do not dry the beanie or headband in direct sunlight.
- The beanie/headband can be ironed on the reverseside (max. 110 degrees) by light steaming or ironing.
Storaging your woolbeanie/-headband:
- Store woolen clothes in an airy, dry place, protected from pests.
- Always clean stains or crumbs from the beanie. (note that these woolproducts are not moth-protected!)
Other thing to notice:
- Chlorine bleaching prohibited
- No dry cleaning
