Love, Care and Attention
Caring for your exquisite St Albans Mohair, Alpaca or Wool product is like caring for a life-long friend – if you treat them well they will be with you for life!
They don’t ask for much, only that you hand-wash them in a tub filled with warm or cold water and a dash of ‘wool wash’ detergent.
Immerse the product in water, gently moving it in the tub in order to soak up the detergent, then leave submerged for around 5 minutes.
Thoroughly rinse your product with cold water to remove all detergent from the fabric and then carefully remove the wet fabric (taking care not to wring dry) and place it over a line or clotheshorse.
NOTE: St Albans products are also Dry-Cleanable – just make sure you take them to a reputable cleaner who will care for them like they would their own. Also ensure they are aware of the symbol (capital P) on the tag.
- Wind is more important than sun. To stop line marks put a towel over wires on your clothesline and place the fabric over the towel
- Mohair likes some moisture and absorbs up to 18%. Do not over-dry, which can make the fibres brittle and harsh.
- Brush the pile top to bottom – not across.
St Albans offers a full rejuvenation service (kind of like a textile face-lift) for all of our products. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call +61 3 9544 7533.
