Materials & Care
CARING FOR MERINO WOOL PRODUCTS: BASIC RULES
The product can be machine washed. Use only the wool cycle, as it is more gentle (applying appropriate temperature and lower-speed spin).
The product can be hand-washed in water below 30 °C, followed by gentle wringing and flat drying, best on a towel. When rinsing, lower water temperature gradually to prevent shrinking or other deformation.
Use gentle detergents for wool.
Don't dry the product on a heater. If a heater's temperature exceeds 30 °C (which is very common), the water contained in the knit also exceeds 30 °C and the product shrinks, like it does when washed improperly.
Do not use a softener!
MACHINE WASHING IN WATER ABOVE 30°C AND LONG SPIN CYCLES DEGRADE THE PRODUCT. THE KNIT TURNS INTO FELT AND SHRINKS. CLAIMING WARRANTY FOR PRODUCTS DEGRADED THIS WAY IS NOT POSSIBLE.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION CAREFULLY

CARING FOR GORE-TEX® AND GORE® WINDSTOPPER® PRODUCTS
Products with a GORE® membrane can be regularly washed. These high-quality products maintain their appearance and functionality even if washed often. Regular washing is very important for the membrane, because it prevents the pores from getting clogged and becoming less breathable. The lifespan of the product depends on proper care and handling.
