For cleaning merino wool

Why technical merino wool dries quickly and cools you down...

Merino wool active clothing is designed to be worn next to the skin, providing user comfort by maintaining body temperature and controlling moisture. They are highly wicking (will spread moisture out over a large area), fast drying and breathable. It is therefore essential to maintain these properties when caring for merino wool clothing.

Merino wool needs to be cared for properly to keep it in top condition...

Merino wool is fantastic for regulating your temperature and controlling body moisture, but to keep it functioning properly care must be taken when washing.

It is recommended to wash merino wool items in mild liquid detergents and to avoid using powder or bio detergents, which contain enzymes. Using conventional household detergents or fabric softeners can impair wicking properties by causing the fabric to retain moisture. This leads to reduced wicking capabilities and slow drying of the fabric, resulting in reduced user comfort. Additionally, standard household softeners can lead to pilling over a number of washes.

Wash your Merino clothing after use...

Once your merino wool items have been used a few times wash them with Nikwax Wool Wash™ to refresh, remove odors, soften and enhance drying and cooling. Apply Nikwax Wool Wash™ to merino wool base layers, socks, and travel clothing to keep them in perfect condition.

Conventional household detergents and fabric softeners reduce the performance of your base layers...

Using conventional household detergents and fabric softeners will impair the wicking properties of merino wool fabrics. Standard household detergents do not stop odors from building up in the fabric when in use. Conventional fabric softeners leave water-hating (hydrophobic) residues that will reduce the performance of the fabric, preventing it from spreading moisture and working to its maximum potential.

Nikwax Wool Wash™ outperforms conventional household detergents and fabric softeners at improving wicking, accelerating drying, and removing and preventing odor build up.
