Fill sink with lukewarm water and add a small amount of soap specific for woollens or use gentle baby shampoo. Place item in water and gently squeeze to ensure it is fully saturated with water.
Leave to soak for up to 30 minutes, agitating very gently throughout. Rinse well with clean, lukewarm water to remove any detergent and residue. Avoid wringing or stretching.
To remove excess water, place item into a domestic washing machine and run a gentle spin only cycle. To dry, reshape item whilst damp and lay to dry flat on a towel. Avoiding direct sunlight or strong heat sources.
Once dry, steam press with a cool iron and a damp cloth. Do not tumble dry as this will cause shrinkage and felting. Alternatively, your item can be dry cleaned.
For our larger blankets we recommend that these should be dry cleaned due to their size.
