- Mulesing Free Merino Wool
Mulesing Free Merino Wool
To ensure that the ethical guidelines for our materials are followed, we work exclusively with farms that have been certified as mulesing-free. Mulesing involves the removal of strips of wool-bearing skin from around the breach of a sheep, in order to prevent flystrike: a horrifying and cruel act against animals that we will never stand for.
When you need to wash the garment – let it soak in cool water with mild detergent or baby shampoo for a couple of minutes, agitate the garment gently when washing. Rinse with cool water and squeeze out excess water gently, do not twist. Flat dry on a towel and avoid sunlight and direct heat.
Fold the sweater by putting it flat out on a table with the front down, fold in the arms and then fold the bottom half up so that the bottom hem meets the neck. Never hang your cashmere sweaters – as they tent to get the shape of the hanger if you do so. Before putting it back in the wardrobe, make sure the sweater is clean and completely dry, to keep shape and avoid clothing moths that love luxurious fabrics.
