Natural wool fibres are self-cleaning materials, so airing your HOLMM. wool garments is often enough to give them a fresh start.
Washing is hard on your garments and also on the environment. Water waste is not only relevant in the production process, but also for the consumer. To minimise waste and to maintain the longevity of your HOLMM. garment we suggest washing only when needed.
We recommend a gentle wash 30-degrees wool programme for our wool knits
It is important to know that woollen fibres are especially sensitive towards high temperatures and sudden changes in water temperature. If your washing machine has a gentle wool cycle, this is preferable to washing your HOLMM. items by hand. Machines keep a stabile temperature, the garment is not soaked and a very light spinning that is part of the wash cycle helps remove excess water. All of which is a gentler and more consistent way of cleaning our garments than by hand. We recommend a gentle wash 30-degrees wool programme for our wool knits and 40 degrees maximum for our cotton products.
For garments that need a delicate wash, we recommend using a designated delicate or wool detergent soap. Never use biological/enzyme based detergents, softeners, bleach or soap containing bleach.
Avoid putting any of your HOLMM. items in a dryer. High temperatures, from a dryer or even an iron, will damage the natural properties of the fibres and wear out your HOLMM. garments before their time. For the best results, simply let your HOLMM. products air dry. This will also save on energy consumption.
