When first used, a certain amount of excess fiber will work its way to the surface of the fabric. This is completely normal. As the upholstery is used these excess fibers will eventually diminish. In the meantime, the fibers can be brushed off the surface with a soft clothing brush or vacuum. These excess fibers do not reflect the quality of the fabric or the long life of wool. This is a normal result of the way the wool yarn is spun.
Easy care. Wool is antistatic and does not attract dirt like other fabrics. Wool is also water repellent, so spillages are slow to penetrate the fabric. To maintain the beautiful color and appearance of the fabric, we recommend gentle vacuuming, preferably every week, with a soft nozzle.
Stain removal. A golden rule: always remove stains as quickly as possible! Most stains and dirt can be removed using an ordinary Ph neutral detergent diluted in lukewarm water at normal strength (follow the directions on the bottle).
- First, soak up as much of the liquid as possible with the white kitchen roll or tea towel.
- If the stain has dried on, remove as much of it as possible by vacuuming.
- Rub carefully with a clean, white cloth.
- Press the fabric with a dry tea towel or piece of white kitchen roll every time the water is added so as to soak up moisture and dirt.
- Use clean water without any detergent for the final clean. The area may appear darker than the surrounding fabric after being cleaned with water. This will become noticeable over time.
For mega-nasty stains. Remove the seat and take it to dry-cleaners. If you want a more detailed wool stain guide – please email us at email@example.com
