- Responsible Virgin Wool
Responsible Virgin Wool
Wool is a breathable high-quality fibre with high absorbency, which means that it wicks sweat and moisture from the skin, keeping you dry and comfortable when worn. Responsibly made virgin wool has longer fibres than recycled wool, making it a durable and long-lasting material. All virgin wool used by House of Dagmar is certified by the Responsible Wool Standard (RWS) to ensure that the wool comes from progressive farms with regard for animal welfare and land management. The RWS focuses on farming practices such as handling, nutrition, shearing, medical treatments, and sustainable grazing methods for the animals.
House of Dagmar only uses virgin wool certified by the Responsible Wool Standard (RWS) to create high-quality garments without compromising the welfare of the animal.
Due to the wool fibre's wax like coating and naturally dirt-repellent qualities, airing out the garment regularly and using a cloth to remove minor stains is often sufficient for maintenance. When you need to wash the garment – let it soak in cool water with a mild detergent or baby shampoo for a couple of minutes, and gently agitate while washing. Rinse with cool water and lightly squeeze or roll the wet garment with a towel to remove excess water. Lay flat on a dry towel. Avoid direct heat and sunlight. Always follow the specific instructions on the garment's care label.
Pilling occurs when shorter wool fibres find their way to the fabric's surface when the garment is worn and rubbed against itself or other clothes. We recommend removing the pilling after washing with a clothing brush or a sweater stone. The pilling will decrease over time.
Store wool garments folded, laying flat. Do not store the garment on a hanger, as it tends to stretch or form after the shape of the hanger.
