Merino wool, known for its exceptional softness, is one of the best quality wools available. This material comes from Merino sheep. It is characterized by a fine fiber that is ideal for elastic and breathable fabrics. Marae Kids uses merino wool in its designs, and it has become one of the hallmarks of success for its brand. The result: sophisticated, warm and soft models of superior quality.
Due to its nature, this material does not need to be washed as often as other fabrics. We know that no matter how hard you try to make your child look impeccable, getting dirty is part of their childhood. Keeping your little one from sitting still and not getting stained is mission impossible. Merino wool has the advantage of being very resistant to wrinkles, odors and stains. Here are some tips for optimal care.
Wool stain and odor care
To remove stains, apply a small amount of mild detergent to the affected area. Rub the detergent gently with your finger until the dirt is loosened.
Even if you don’t see any stains, clean the collar, cuffs and armpits of the coat. You can also use a bar of stain remover soap or a wool and cashmere shampoo to get the stains out. However, tough stains such as paint or dyes should be entrusted to a reputable dry cleaner.
Never use bleach on your merino wool clothing, as this product will dissolve the wool’s natural fibers. It is advisable not to tumble dry, as wool may tend to shrink, hang it out to dry and let it air dry.
To eliminate odors, a good option is to air it outdoors. Ventilation is ideal in humid climates, since the air steam removes dirt from the fibers and bad odors. It should also be borne in mind that it should not be exposed to direct sunlight. For this reason, it is also advisable to turn the garment inside out. It is considered a self-cleaning fiber, so airing it is enough to eliminate any impregnated odor.
