What goes into the Canadian Wool Comforter?
Custom Woolen Mills does minimal processing of the wool, leaving out common industrial processes such as bleaching, carbonizing, chlorinating, bonding with resin or glue, and moth proofing. These processes are hard on the environment, have unknown long-term consequences to human health, weaken the wool fibre and reduce the effectiveness of wool’s natural qualities. Instead, Custom Woolen Mills washes the raw wool with a mild, plant-based, biodegradable detergent and then rinses it with water.
For wool-fill bedding, sun-bleaching is a good, simple practice to keep your bedding sterile and fresh. Sun bleaching every one to three months reduces the need for washing. To do so, simply remove your bedding from any covering it may be in (duvet covers or pillow cases) and lay it out in a clean, sunny spot outside for a few hours during the middle of the day when the suns intensity is at its highest. Flip the bedding over during this time so that both sides receive direct sunlight. The sun's powerful energy will sanitize your bedding and the outside air will freshen it up.
When washing wool products, the important thing is not to agitate the wool, as this causes the fibers to mat together and shrink. Soaking and spinning, though, are fine.
The following items can be washed in a top-loading washing machine by following our simple wash instructions:
