Washing Instructions for Woolens / Possum Merino
A wonderful virtue of possum merino garments is the possum fur and merino wool resists the absorption of odor and therefore need a lot less washing! You'll find all garments come with washing instructions attached. Possum Fur has antiseptic qualities and is very gentle on the most sensitive skin. For hand washing rinse using warm water and an approved wool detergent, rinse well, dry flat. Dry cleanable. Do not bleach or tumble dry. (Use a dry cleaner you trust as I find they don't always get it right and can shrink the garment) *If using machine wash use the delicates option only.
A good tip is - the temperature you wash in is the same you rinse in as temperature changes can bring shrinkage. Also don't over lather, just a small amount of liquid soap is all you need, you can always add more later if you need it. Gently swirl and press the garment around in the warm water with no vigorous rubbing or wringing. You can roll in a towel to absorb water first before laying flat to dry. Shape garment while wet on towel. I have found hand washing garments in warm water as instructed very easy and with no problem.
