- Virgin wool from Romsdalen
Mother nature took care of this one for you. Wool is self cleaning and has a great natural ability to prevent bad odours. For a quick and easy clean you can simply hang your woollen stuff in damp shower air or out in a fresh natural breeze and your dogs smelly adventures will be gone overnight. Stains can be removed with a damp cloth.
If you are feeling the need for a more thorough cleaning, all our wool products can be washed on a 30 degree machine wool cycle. When laundering use a wool suitable detergent. For more heavy products like blankets its a good idea to lay them out flat to dry so they don’t stretch out of shape.
