Wool bedding care tips
SnugSleep™ wool bedding products are manufactured using high quality wool designed to provide the optimum in sleeping comfort and health. Wool is a natural living fibre that requires gentle care to maximize its longevity. Even superwash wool requires minimum agitation and never expose any wool product to high heat for more than a few minutes. Remember how your hair looks when it is over-processed and over-dried!! For the best care of your SnugSleep™ wool bedding products use the care tips below as your guide.
Classic Wool Duvet
As this product contains “carded wool” it cannot be successfully laundered on a regular basis. Drycleaning is recommended and be sure to inform the drycleaner the filling is wool. Any spills and small stains can be “spot” hand washed with lukewarm water and mild detergent in a laundry tub, rinsed with cool water and allowed to drain in the tub till dry enough to hang up to finish drying. Regular use of a duvet cover will eliminate the need for frequent cleaning.
Wool Knop Pillows
Any time re-fluffing: place pillow or pillows (max. 2) in dryer with a wet (wrung-out) terry towel. Tumble for 5 – 8 minutes on “hot”, remove and allow to cool before use. The steam released will refluff the wool knops.
Laundry – two choices. Unzip cover, pour loose knop fill into a large plastic bag. Launder cotton cover in machine with other bedding. Refill and use. This can be done as frequently as you desire. The whole pillow may be hand washed if needed. Lukewarm water, mild detergent in laundry tub. Gently squeeze – do not agitate. When rinsed can be “spun” in washing machine to remove excess water. Place in dryer on hot for max. 5 minutes. Remove and allow to air dry.

These washable wool products can be machine laundered in a front loading machine using cool water, delicate cycle and an approved wool soap.
