The majority of our Arans are made using 100% pure new wool sourced in Ireland. We always advise customers to handwash their Aran in tepid water, using a generic hair shampoo and conditioner to keep their garment soft, it is wool after all which contains oils so think of it like washing your hair, be gentle to it and it will stay soft! Drying is best on a flat surface over a towel placed on a table. If you want to stretch your sweater put it on a hanger but be warned it’s very effective!
For Merino wool sweaters, some manufacturers say they can be washed in a wool cycle on 30 degrees, as do some pure new wool manufacturers, but we would always advise handwashing just to be sure.
By following the above guidelines it will help keep your Aran Sweater looking newer for longer.
