Caring for Wool
What is merino wool felt?
Felt is wool. Wool is hair from sheep. It’s that simple. Of the many varieties of wool available, the one we use comes from a specific breed of sheep called merino. Merino wool is unique among all wool varieties and prized for its strength, flexibility and softness. The secret of merino wool is the ultra fine fibers, which allow it 50% more flexibility than traditional, courser wool varieties. Merino fibers are typically much longer, creating density, structure and highly reduced pilling.
What happens if I spill something on my felt product? First, don’t panic. The merino wool does not take color easily and most stains can be removed with a light soak and an absorbent towel. Here are the the ones our customer service team gets asked most frequently.
Great news! Water will not damage felt. In fact, the material is able to wick away large quantities of moisture – which is why our coasters are so popular!Just let it air dry and, if necessary, lay the product flat with some weight on top just to make sure those wool fibers keep in place.
Wine, oil, and food
Step 1: Wet the spot well with a mix of warm water and light detergent until saturated.
Step 2: Massage the stain lightly to break up fibers – wait 2 or 3 minutes.
Step 3: Pat – don’t rub – the area firmly with absorbent paper towel to remove moisture.
Step 4: Repeat 1-3 as necessary till stain visibly lightens.
Step 5: Rinse and repeat until detergent clears.
Step 6: Pat (again, don’t rub) surface well and lay flat to dry.
Lint rollers are a best first option for dry stains – a few passes with a good adhesive roller should reduce dry stains significantly and freshen up any felt product. We recommend doing that anyway with all products, it will get them looking like new.
What if I get mud on my bag? The most important thing to do with mud is let it sit and dry (that should be easy enough). Dryness is the key for releasing fine dirt particles. Once dry, slightly beat the felt to knock out the remaining dust as much as possible. Vacuum lightly to finish. Wait, vacuum? It may seem strange, but it works!
A few tips are: make sure hose attachment is clean; hold the felt securely in place; apply the vacuum with quick up and down motions to the affected area.
