It is recommended to wash your wool jumpers after 3 to 5 wears. If you can’t wait that long, give it a quick clean in the sink with lukewarm water and a teaspoon of a mild detergent made for wool garments – ideally one that is gentle on colour. Avoid rubbing or wringing as this can cause the fibres to felt up. For stunning womens merino wool sweater ranges, visit

A good soak can help restore the shape of your jumper and prevent bobbling or shrinking. Fill a basin with lukewarm water and add a teaspoon of a gentle detergent made for wool garments (or as instructed with the detergent). Submerge your garment, gently swish it around avoiding rubbing or wringing, and let it soak for 10 minutes or so. Rinse well in cold or tepid water – again, never rub or wring as this can damage the fibres.

After washing, hang your woollen jumper up to air dry flat on a towel (preferably white so that no dye transfer occurs) or use a steamer if you have one. Do not put it on a hanger as this can stretch the wool and make it misshapen – instead, lay it out or drape it over a chair or table to keep it looking neat.
