Most wool garments are hand washed with mild soap, such as a delicate wash or a detergent specifically made for wool. If there is a care label on the garment, follow its specific instructions. Dry cleaning is also an option.

To hand wash wool, fill the sink with tepid water and add a small amount of wash. Immerse the garment in the water, swish it around and allow it to remain in the water for 10 minutes. Rinse the garment twice, and press the excess water out of the garment after each rinse. Roll the garment in a towel to further remove excess water, and place the item on a clean towel to dry.
