Dry cleaning, IMHO, makes wool scratchier. I'd hand wash: Fill sink with hot water with a little shampoo added. Submerge item and let soak. Remove water. Remove item. Fill sink again and add a little hair conditioner. Let soak. Remove water. Remove item. Squeeze very gently get mose of the water out. Roll in towel and step on it several times to get more water out. Lay out and pat into shape. Let dry.
Thank you for the washing instructions, but hot water?
I thought hot water was a no-no, especially for wool.
Or is it okay because I would be handwashing it instead of machine washing??
