These gloves are made from 100% lambswool which gives a lovely, soft, durable fabric, but they do need washing carefully to avoid shrinking them. If you are a 'shrinker', they can be dry cleaned! Heat, agitation, and detergent are the enemies of wool, so aim to soak and rinse the dirt out. The great news is wool is extremely easy to clean with just water.
Whether you are washing your garment by hand or machine, it is always a good idea to thoroughly soak them in cold water before washing this will prevent shrinking or felting.
If washing in the machine, choose a gentle wool cycle and if possible, adjust the temperature to 20 degrees. Use a wool wash but only half the amount recommended by the manufacturer. A little bit of soap can shift a lot of dirt which sits on the surface of wool (or make your own from a diluted solution of non-bio liquid with a few drops of essential oils, lavender is perfect or even use baby shampoo). Add a half cap of fabric conditioner to the final rinse. Once the wool cycle is complete, you can give your woollens and extra spin to remove any excess water — dry flat on a towel. Once dry give the item a gentle press with a steam iron to reshape, leaving it to cool and 'set' before moving off the ironing board.
