Care & Sizes
Engel and Cosilana Untreated merino wool needs hand washing or gentle cold machine washing on a wool program. It is very important to use a wool detergent! If you are planning to wash it in the machine it may shrink a bit, so you may want to buy a bigger size than otherwise.
BUT! Untreated wool does not need to be cleaned very often, it is not a fibre like cotton, and it repels dirt and is self cleaning. Often hanging it outsides for a day will be fine. You only really need to wash it if something has been spilled on it. It sounds strange but it works!
I recommend washing all wool fleece by hand.
Treated wool like Joha, Fub, Celavi can be washed on a wool program in the machine without any shrinkage! Please use a wool detergent!
Sizes are given in cms according to your child's height. To choose a size measure your child! If you have any doubt please get in touch and I can measure the item for you! If you plan to wash Engel on a wool program in the machine please go up a size as they will shrink a bit in the length.
