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.
