Full Description

Details

Woolskin Premium Woolwash was originally developed to wash and maintain medical sheepskins. It has since been developed to launder all household products made of sheepskin, pure wool and wool blends.

This product does not contain phosphates, peroxide, alkali, enzymes or bleach - all of which can cause irreversible damage to leather and suede. It is pH neutral, and does not contain thickeners, fillers or synthetic perfume. The product is an excellent low-temperature, antibacterial detergent for use on wool, alpaca, mohair, silk, cashmere, llama, angora and oppossum.

Using Woolskin Premium Woolwash ensures that natural wool keeps its soft texture, and that new wool retains its special lustre, meaning your treasured sheepskin products will be maintained for years. As well as keeping all your sheepskin products in tip-top condition, Woolskin Premium Woolwash contains a blend of Australian melaleuca oils - including tea tree oil - which have proven effective against dust mites, pet allergens and mould spores.

Completely safe and recommended for use on all sheepskin and wool baby products.

Product Care & Sizing

Product Care

Wool is a hard-wearing and resilient protein based fibre and, with the right care, will last for years. It tends to shun dirt and grime and needs laundering less frequently than other materials like cotton and manmade fibres. Problems with laundering wool are easily avoided &ndash; simply read on!</p>

How to Wash Wool

For a machine-washable product: De-pill before laundering Keep different colours separate Use the Wool Program of your machine at 30º Ce (86 º F) or less (higher temperatures can cause matting, felting and/or shrinkage).

Use one of our detergents or a Woolmark  approved detergent - See Detergent Notes below. Never spin at more than 600 rpm. (Faster speeds can stretch the product). Some items should not be spun at all.  We don't recommend using fabric conditioners on wool products.  If your item is not soft after washing it is likely to be due to either too much detergent used or not enough rinsing (or both), however some areas with very hard water may need a small amount of conditioner but always read the small print on the label in relation to wool!  Top tip from our Miele man: "Most people use more than twice the necessary detergent but the soap companies don't want you to know this!"

Which Detergent? Only use detergents specifically approved for wool: these can be bought from all major supermarkets. We have superb wool wash detergents available here but we also recommend: Ecover Wool Wash™ Persil Silk and Woolite™, Stergene™ Gentle Care™, Dreft Handwash™ and Woolite™.  We are also happy to recommend detergents with a Woolmark™ approval. Please don't just assume that  your normal "gentle" detergent will do the job! Many bio (biological) detergents contain enzymes that literally eat wool and even "gentle" non-bio detergents ruin wool if they are not wool approved. Read the small print on your detergent packet and you will find your gentle non-bio detergent is likely to contain bleach!  

Never use biological detergents: note that non-biological detergents can cause heavy fading and even felting and weaken the fibre causing it to fail at stress points so don't use these either!

Pilling or Bobbling

During initial use all soft knitted and woven wool products are likely to shed some of their fibres. These shed fibres often collect as small bobbles or "pilling" on the fabric. Please note that this is quite normal, is a temporary issue and not a sign of a faulty product or poor quality yarn or fabrication. You can easily remove the bobbles with a pilling comb, safety razor or de-pilling shaver. If your item has heavy pilling then de-pill before laundering.

Handwashing

If an article of clothing, turn item inside out to wash the fabric where stains and odours build up on the inside closest to your body and under arms. Prepare a tub or basin of cool/tepid water (less than 30º C, 86º F) with appropriate quantity of Wool Company Shampoo or wool approved detergent.

Completely submerge item(s) in bath agitating the water and detergent using your hands to gently force air bubbles out. Soak for at least half an hour. It is fine to leave it soaking for longer unless you are washing silk in which case 30 minutes is plenty.

Gently agitate the water again. If you see colour in the water, keep calm and carry on! This is quite normal and is simply the yarn dye releasing some colour: you shouldn't notice any colour loss.

Rinse well - running room temperature water and keep rinsing until all soapy water is gone. Be careful not to wring out and avoid the item being inadvertently stretched by weight of water; press the water out of the item instead

How to Dry Wool

Pull gently into shape, dry flat, on a clean colourfast towel, or spread out in an airy place out of direct bright/harsh sunlight and away from direct heat. Domestic dehumidifiers are great for this purpose.

Can I tumble-dry wool?

Some high quality tumble driers have a woollens care program. Read the manufacturer's instructions before trusting your precious wool items to a machine! If in any doubt don't do it. We sometimes use our Miele machine which has an extremely gentle cycle but always let it finish drying naturally. But, unless you have green electricity, it's not a very environmentally friendly option! Be careful not to mix your delicates with other items, laundry balls etc. For best results do not tumble dry.  

How to Care for your Sheepskin Rug

Machine Washing

Single and double sheepskins fit comfortably in standard British washing machines, while treble fleeces may fit into larger machines. Use the coolest "woollens" settings - an absolute maximum temperature of 40ºC, preferably 30ºC - and add just a teaspoon of mild, non-biological non-bleach detergent, important: See our Which Detergent? notes. It is beneficial to also add some lanolin based wool fabric conditioner and you can also add some teatree essential oil as an effective antibacterial agent (great if if you have pets). Lightly spin the rug and then allow to dry naturally, away from direct heat. Flexing the sheepskin as it dries will help to maintain its suppleness. Never use biological washing detergent. Never use bleach and note that MOST non-bio washing powders contain bleach! Never wash in hot water.  Always remove from the machine promptly after the program has finished: don't leave it in a wet heap or you will ruin it. Always dry in a well ventilated place to dry away from direct heat and sunlight.

Hand Washing

If hand washing, use warm water, less than 40º C, and again use just a teaspoon of mild, non-biological wool approved detergent. Add some lanolin based fabric conditioner to the rinse water and teatree oil is also beneficial as an anti-bacterial that helps prevent unpleasant smells. Gently squeeze out excess water, carefully pull the rug back into shape, dry it flat away from direct heat ensuring a good air supply all round it. Flexing the sheepskin as it dries will help to maintain its suppleness. Carefully brush the wool with a wire sheepskin brush (we supply these) once when damp and again when dry, to maintain the silky soft texture of the rug. Never tumble dry. Never dry on a radiator.  Never store in a plastic bag

Dry cleaning

All our sheepskins can be dry-cleaned. Most high street dry-cleaners should be able to offer this service. It will make your old sheepskin rugs look like new.
