Care For Your Wool

We know that if you’re going to invest in a dog jumper or matching owner set, you’re going to want it to look fresh for years to come. And, at WAG&WOOL, that’s exactly what you get. By following our simple guidance, your luxury knitwear can even last a dog’s lifetime… 

Machine washing wool

Wool is naturally breathable, stain-resistant and odour-free so you won’t need to wash it every single time. But, when you do, simply turn it inside-out and place it on a delicate or wool cycle in your washing machine. Be careful not to wash your WAG&WOOL items at high temperatures and try to use mild detergent. The Woolmark Company has even recommended some of the best detergents to use.

Hand washing wool

It’s also really easy to freshen your dog clothing and human accessories up by hand. Again, turn them inside-out. Then place into a bowl or basin of lukewarm water. Add a small amount of mild detergent and leave to soak for 10 minutes. Rinse through with clean lukewarm water and then rinse with cold water. We advise that you don’t ring the garment afterwards as this can cause it to lose its shape.

Drying wool 

After washing your woollen dog coats and jackets, either by hand or in a machine, we recommend air drying flat on an airer or on top of a towel. Make sure they’re fully dry before putting them on your furry friend!

Pilling wool

You might find some balls of fibre forming on your wool after a few wears. This is completely normal and is a result of the fibre rubbing during wear and movement. Pilling can easily be removed by hand or by using a pill comb but don’t use the comb too often as you may break the fibre with excess use.
