Wool & The unique formula can be used for both hand and machine washing. The Cedar scent is perfect for both everyday washing and added protection for seasonal storage. This Wool & Cashmere Shampoo will leave your wool and cashmere sweaters softer than ever and smelling fresh.

Directions for use on wool and cashmere sweaters:

  • Pre-treat by de-pilling first if the item has heaving pilling. Brush the pilled areas with The Laundress Sweater Stone and shake out.
  • Pre-treat stains, if necessary, using The Laundress Stain Solution and / or Wash & Stain Bar.
  • To pre-treat tough odors, such as smoke or heavy body perspiration, pre-soak with The Laundress Scented Vinegar.
  • Turn your clothing inside-out. Wash with like-colors only.

Hand Washing

  • Turn item inside-out to wash the fabric where stains and odors buildup on the inside closest to your body and under arms.
  • Prepare a “bath” – basin of cool/tepid water with 2 capfuls of The Laundress Wool and Cashmere Shampoo.
  • Submerge item(s) in bath using your hands to agitate the water and detergent.
  • Soak for at least ½ hour. It is harmless to leave soaking for longer unless you are washing silk.
  • DO NOT PANIC if you see color in the water. This is normal and it is simply the yarn dye releasing color. You will not notice any loss of color at the end.
  • Rinse well - running room temperature water until soapy water is gone.
  • Do not wring; press the water out of the item instead.

Machine Washing

  • The Laundress Wool and Cashmere Shampoo can be used in High-efficiency and Top-Loader Washers.
  • Change machine setting to woolens/delicate cycle. Make sure water temperature is cold. Add the appropriate amount of Wool & Cashmere Shampoo to the machine.
  • Turn item inside out and place in The Laundress Mesh Bag and wash. Start cycle.
  • Remove from the washer promptly to reduce creasing. Do not put in the dryer!
  • Do not wring; press the water out of the item instead. 

Drying / Finishing

  • To dry, place item (inside-out) on top of a towel making sure the towel and item is flat and in its original shape, then roll up in the towel (like a rolling pin) to remove excess water.
  • To speed up the drying process, use more than one towel and repeat several times.
  • To finish drying - lay item flat in its natural shape on a drying rack or towel. Hang, if item will not stretch or deform.
  • When dry, finish removing any extra pills with The Laundress Sweater Stone.
  • We like to steam our wool/cashmere for the perfect finish. (this is not necessary, however).
