I've washed tons of wool clothes and they have never shrunk...the shrinkage happens when you put it in the dryer.

Just hang it to dry and it should be fine

Wool Fabric General Care Tips

? Allow 24 hours before wearing a wool garment again. The natural resiliency of wool fabric will allow wrinkles to fall out and the original shape to bounce back.

? Wool blankets and apparel made from wool fabric require cleaning only once or twice a year.

? Soil and dust can be removed from wool fabric by brushing lengthwise with a garment brush. Wool garments with heavily napped surfaces should be brushed regularly. Finer wool fabric should be restored using a damp cloth instead of a brush.

? If a wool garment gets damp, hang it out of direct sunlight. Be sure to brush it after it is dry.

? If a label says "Dry Clean Only" take the garment to a professional dry cleaner for the best results. You may choose to hand wash the garment instead. However, the garment probably hasn't been treated for washability. Washing may result in some shrinkage, loss of color, and/or the fabric may lose some of its softness.

Removing Stains from Wool Fabric

? Try to treat stains immediately to prevent them from setting into the fabric.

? With a clean white cloth, blot to remove as much of the stain as possible. Do NOT rub.

? Take garments with stubborn stains to the dry cleaner as soon as possible. This includes stains caused by paint, dyes, nail polish, etc.

? Have a bottle of stain or spot removal solution on hand for oil based stains such as oil, make-up, or chocolate. Make sure that the product you use is safe for wool fabric. Test the solution on an inconspicuous area before using on the stain.

? Be sure to remove stains before pressing. Heat can cause stains to set in wool fabric.

Hand Washing Wool Fabric

? Clean wool fabric using a mild detergent in lukewarm water. Never use hot water! Do NOT use bleach. Bleach dissolves wool fabric.

? Completely cover the garment in water and soak for 3 to 5 minutes. Gently squeeze to allow water to penetrate the fabric. Do NOT wring the garment.

? Rinse thoroughly with cool water to remove all traces of soap.


? Squeeze gently to remove excess water. Do NOT wring the garment.

? To dry, lay the garment on a flat surface, reshaping if necessary and allow to dry away from direct sunlight and heat. Do NOT hang to dry. This will cause the wool fabric to stretch from the weight of the water that has soaked into the fibers.

? Never put wool clothing in the dryer! The combination of heat, friction and pressure will cause shrinkage.

Pressing Wool Fabric

? Set iron for WOOL setting.

? Add water to the iron. Always use steam heat when pressing. Never iron wool fabric dry.

? Squeeze gently to remove excess water. Do NOT wring the garment.

? Press garment on the inside of the garment to avoid surface shine.

? Use a pressing cloth when top pressing. A clean white handkerchief or cotton cloth may also be used.

? When pressing napped fabrics, place a piece of the same fabric or a thick terry cloth towel on the ironing board to prevent crushing.

? If napped wool fabric is slightly scorched when pressing, rub lightly with an emery board. A diluted solution of hydrogen peroxide may be used for a more severe scorch. Be sure to test on a hidden area first.

? Shine created by pressing may be reduced by sponging white vinegar on surface of wool garment. Rinse thoroughly.

? Some recommended notions for someone with a lot of wool to press are a steam iron, a tailor's ham for pressing curved areas such as collars and lapels, a seam roll for pressing seams open without making a visible seam edge, a point presser for hard-to-reach places, and a press cloth.

Wool Fabric, Clothing, and Blanket Storage

? To prevent the invasion of the clothes moth, brush wool with a fabric brush before storing.

? Clean the garment or blanket. Food stains and body oils attract moths. Dry cleaning or laundering kills moth eggs and larvae.

? Store cleaned wool fabric in airtight bags or containers with tight-fitting lids. When folding, add white tissue paper between folds to prevent wrinkling.

? Add mothballs to the container. Do NOT put them directly on the fabric. Hang them in small loosely woven cloth bags near the fabric. Clothing will need to be aired out after removing from storage to remove the mothball odor.

Febreeze = Washing machine in a convenient spray bottle.
