Furmey Tips: How to wash your wool jumpers

Is wool washable? You ask, we deliver! We know that our furry friends can get into all sorts of mischief, and colder weather simply comes with a muddy puddle or two. That's why we want to ensure that our wool furmey jumpers can be easily washed, so that you can keep them looking clean and fresh for your furry friend. 

For those with a washing machine, washing your wool furmey jumper is a breeze. Simply use the wool wash program if available, or if not, use a cold or delicate wash cycle at 30 degrees. Which detergent for wool? Use a gentle detergent: Choose a wool-specific or gentle detergent that is designed to protect wool fibers. Avoid using regular laundry detergent, as this can be too harsh for wool and cause damage. Once the cycle is complete, remove your clean jumper from the machine and lay it flat to dry, avoid hanging it up, as this can cause the jumper to stretch or become misshapen. It's as easy as 1-2-3!

For those without a washing machine, don't worry! You can still easily wash your Furmey jumper by hand. Here's how:

  1. Fill a clean sink or basin with lukewarm water, adding a small amount of wool detergent. Avoid using hot water, as this can cause the wool to shrink or become misshapen.
  2. Gently place your wool furmey jumper into the water, ensuring that it is fully submerged. Allow it to soak for around 10 minutes.
  3. Gently agitate the water to help lift any dirt or stains, but be careful not to rub or wring the wool as this can damage the fibers.
  4. Drain the soapy water and rinse your jumper thoroughly with clean, lukewarm water until all detergent is removed.
  5. Once rinsed, gently squeeze any excess water from the jumper without twisting or wringing it.
  6. Lay the jumper flat on a clean towel and roll it up to remove any remaining moisture. Unroll the towel and lay the jumper flat to air dry, shaping it back into its original size and shape as it dries.

With these simple steps, you can keep your wool furmey jumper looking clean and fresh, no matter what your furry friend gets up to. Happy washing! And for those who prefer visual aids, be sure to check out our easy-to-follow TikTok video.
