Wool is a delicate material that is prone to shrinking, but this does not mean that the garments can not be washed from time to time. Hand washing, with mild detergent for delicates, is recommended for these types of clothing. However, woolen clothes can also be washed in the washing machine with light cycles for delicate items. It is advisable to read the instructions on the labels carefully before subjecting the wool to any type of cleaning.
