A Guide to Naturally Caring for Woolen Blankets & Rugs

Wool blankets and rugs bring warmth and coziness into our homes - especially at this time of year, but they require a touch of natural care to stay vibrant and soft. In this guide, I explore how to care for these cherished pieces naturally…

Step 1: How to clean rugs and blanket naturally

Start by shaking out your wool blanket or rug to remove loose dirt and debris. For light cleaning, use a soft brush or hoover with a low suction setting. Avoid aggressive brushing to prevent damage to the delicate wool fibers.

Step 2: Should you hand wash rugs & blankets?

When it's time for a deeper clean, opt for hand washing. Use a mild, natural Wool Detergent with lukewarm water. Using a specially formulated product that is gentle on natural fibers, ensuring your wool blankets and rugs stay soft and luxurious. Gently agitate the water to avoid felting, a process where wool fibers mat together. Rinse thoroughly and press out excess water without wringing.

Step 3: How to dry your rugs & blankets

Lay your wool item flat on a clean, dry towel to air dry. Reshape it gently to its original dimensions while damp. Avoid hanging wool items, as this can cause them to lose their shape. Ensure proper ventilation during the drying process.

Step 4: How to spot clean stains on rugs

To spot clean stains on your rugs and blankets - apply a small amount of natural Stain Solution directly to the stain and gently blot with a clean cloth. Allow the cleaning solution or stain remover to work its magic and avoid scrubbing vigorously, as this can damage the rug fibers. Instead, gently blot the stain until it lifts.

Step 5: Try to avoid over washing

For added protection and a burst of freshness, try using a Garment Refresher Spray. It's perfect for in-between washes, providing a natural shield against moths and other fabric-damaging pests while infusing your wool items with a subtle, calming fragrance.

Caring for your wool blankets and rugs naturally not only preserves their beauty but also aligns with a conscious and eco-friendly lifestyle.
