Taking care of your wool garments 打理羊毛服飾

If you take care of your wool garments and wash them properly, they will last a long time. Wool naturally repels dirt, which means that you can use wool garments for a longer period of time between each wash than you can with corresponding cotton or synthetic fibres. Just airing them goes a long way, particularly in humid weather. The moist air takes dirt and bad odours with it as it passes through the garment. Perfect for travelling and treks when you do not have many opportunities to wash your clothes!

Washing and drying

When it is time to wash your wool garment, you should use a mild wool detergent. Many of wool’s excellent properties are the result of natural oils. If you wash a wool garment in regular detergent, which is designed to effectively remove oils, you will also wash away many of these properties.

Use your washing machine’s wool/hand wash settings for wool garments from Fjällräven or wash them carefully by hand. If you wash by hand, make sure you do not leave them lying in water. Excess water should be squeezed out using a towel - never wring. Reshape them after they have been washed and spread them out to dry on a flat surface so they keep their shape.

Storage and care

Preferably, wool garments should be stored in a cabinet or boxes that are not in direct contact with the walls of your house, particularly if you live in an older house, to prevent moths and other wool-eating insects from finding your favourite sweater. It is best to fold them and store them it on a shelf or in a box - if you store them on hangers they may stretch over time and lose their shape.

Some types of wool may start to pill. This is natural and does not ruin the garment’s functionality. You will normally find most pilling on the sleeves and sides of the body, and on the back if you carry a backpack. Remove the pilling regularly to help the garment keep its style. There are simple devices for sale that will remove pilling - they are like small razors. Simply run the device over the surface of the garment and shave off the pilling. Do not push too hard - since it is a small razor you could damage the garment if you are not careful.

羊毛服飾只要用心打理、正確洗滌,可以穿非常久。羊毛本身具有抗塵性,不需要太頻繁的洗滌,相對之下,棉質和人造纖維服飾就需要經常洗滌。羊毛衣只要保持通風就可以穿很久,尤其在潮濕的天氣,當濕氣通過衣服時,會帶走衣服上的灰塵和異味,非常適合旅行和行山這類無法經常洗衣服的活動!

洗滌和乾燥

羊毛衣物要用溫和的專用洗衣液來清洗。羊毛的許多優點來自於它所蘊含的天然油脂,一般洗衣液的為有效去除油污,反而同時洗去了羊毛的優勢。

使用洗衣機清洗Fjällräven的羊毛衣物時,請選擇「羊毛/手洗」模式,或者小心手洗。手洗時,不要把羊毛衣浸泡在水裡,洗完用毛巾壓出多餘的水分,切勿擰乾。稍微整理恢復形狀,然後攤平晾乾,才不會變形。

收納和保養

羊毛衣最好收納在不直接靠牆的櫥櫃或收納盒裡,如果您住的是老舊房子,特別要注意這點,靠牆容易引來蛀蟲或其他會吃羊毛的蟲子。毛衣掛久了會拉長變形,因此最好的收納法是摺疊儲放在層架上,或用盒子收納。

有些羊毛會起毛球,這是自然現象,不會影響衣服的性能。最容易起毛球的位置是衣袖和兩側,如果您常背著背囊的話,後背也會起毛球。只要定期清除毛球,還是可以維持衣服的外觀。市面上有賣除毛球機,類似小型電鬍刀,將除毛球機沿著衣服表面滑動就可以刮除毛球。不過除毛球機是採用刀片,因此動作要盡量輕柔才不會傷及衣料。
