Our boiled wool is a gently felted wool crepe knit. Felting makes it easy to sew and warm to wear. When wool is felted, the fibers form a shield against both hot and cold temperatures. At the same time skin can breathe freely. Clothes made of boiled wool provide better protection against the wind and rain than standard wool. Boiled wool fabrics do no ravel, so the seams can be left as they are just cut. They no not necessarily need finishing. We recommend boiled wool for coats, jackets, skirts, hats and mittens.
This listing includes one ready cut piece of fabric and it is cut in full width 130 cm. If you wish to buy less or more and have it in continuous metrages, please request a custom listing. We'll be happy to cut you just the amount you need.

As a purely natural product, boiled wool should only be cleaned very gently. Lanolin, the natural grease in wool, envelops wool fibers, protecting them against dirt and splashes. This natural protection makes all woolly products very easy to care for.
If a boiled wool garment has just got slightly dirty, you can simply shake or brush it out very carefully. Wool has a natural "self-cleaning" effect, and it reacts easily with the oxygen in air. To get rid of unwanted odors in wool garments, leave your wool clothes overnight in the fresh air or in the bathroom when you take a shower. The air humidity will help make annoying smells vanish and also smooth out any wrinkles.
If a boiled wool item does need washing, then it should always be done either by hand or on a cold wool cycle in a washing machine. Turn the woolly garment inside out and use a mild wool washing detergent such as wool shampoo, olive oil soap or Marseille soap (Le Chat).
When washing woolly garments, do not wring, squeeze or rub them. Simply press them out gently and only leave them in the water for a short time. To dry them, spread the boiled wool items out on a terry towel and dry flat. Never dry woolly garments in a tumble dryer.
