Care of felted clothes
A handmade garments felted from wool are wear-resistant. They are durable and don’t lose form. But they need right care to please you a lot of years.
In case of appearance wool lint you may remove them by lint remover, or usual hair clipper (without attachment combs).
I recommend hand wash with a small amount of dissolved, gentle pure soap ,shampoo or wool wash. When washing gently massage the item – do not wash vigorously or it will felt more and shrink in size. Ensure rinsing and washing water is the same temperature. A dash of vinegar in the final rinse water is helpful. Very gently wring out the water or use an old dry towel to blot excess moisture being aware that some dye run may occur. Reshape exactly how you would like it to be and dry flat or over a railing in a shady area. Iron on appropriate setting for the fibers/fabrics used in your piece.
Storing your felt.
The nicest way to store your felt is in a calico bag with a rubber band on the top to keep out moths. a zip lock plastic bag can also be used .This is essential if storing in a dark cupboard or drawer as moths love wool as much as you do! If you are placing your wool felt out as a decorative item be sure to keep an eye on the base for moths. They love the dark spaces under and inside pieces an occasional wipe with clove essential oil on the bench surface may help.
