Great for handwashing wool items
July 10, 2012
I find wool so warm for its weight I use it a lot in the cooler conditions, often just a mid-weight Merino wool top with a windproof will do all I need for 90% of winter situations. I'm very active and so can't help sweating. I pick Merino wool because its soft, none-itchy and takes some days to begin smelling. Great for traveling and packing less. So when I do eventually wash my expensive top I hand-wash and want a gentle but effective cleaner. I find the Nikwax woolwash an appropriate solution, I put a dash of it in hot water with the item and leave it to soak, a bit of rubbing in places and then soak and rinse in warm water, drip-dry and then sunshine dry. This is very similar to the Basewash product but a softener added for the wool.Pros: Performance, Ease of use
Great as always.

Best ever for washing wool items. Easy to use, better for wool and a lot cheaper than dry cleaning. Restores wools natural insulating and wicking properties. Wool rules!Pros: Performance, Ease of use, Great value

I use this to wash all my merino wool items. Leaves my merino items feeling soft and smelling fresh. Doesn't damage like regular laundry soap. It's a bit expensive, but I find that I only need to use about 1/2 of what is says, so it lasts quite a while.Pros: Performance, Ease of use, Cons: Cost
