wash your Icelandic woollens
Posted on: 2007-08-01
Lopi should be hand washed only. Use luke warm water and mild soap or detergent (such as Eucalan). Soak the garment in the suds for about 10 minutes, do not rub or wring. Rinse thoroughly in lukewarm water. Wrap in towels and squeeze out as much water as possible. If necessary, spin for a few seconds to remove excess moisture. Smooth the garment out on a dry towel and pull gently into shape. If you wish, you may press the garment gently on the wrong side with a damp cloth on top of it and using a warm iron.
For washing your icelandic woollens and other delicates, why not try some Eucalan lanolin enriched concentrate. Available in four scents and in 100ml and 500ml bottles these products are the ideal way to maintain and preserve the life of your garment. This eco friendly alternative to dry cleaning is:
  • non toxic
  • biodegradable
  • phosphate free
  • a natural lanolin enriched formula
  • petro-chemical free
