Our machine-washable wool is NOT coated with polymers. It's been acid-washed to remove the outermost fiber cuticles making it resistant to felting. Can be machine washed (we recommend using wool or delicate-cycle) and even tumbled dry. The warmer the dryer heat the more shrinkage but shrinkage will generally only be 5-15% while remaining soft and stretchy (nothing like standard merino that can shrink by 50% when washed/dried).
Hand-wash or machine-wash on wool or delicate cycle. Air dry to preserve sizing OR tumble dry on low/medium-heat if you're OK with a small reduction in size. We recommend using Unicorn Fibre Wash to maintain the natural fibers followed by a rinse in Unicorn's Fibre Rinse wool conditioner to leave the wool extra soft and silky.
