Why You Need to Professionally Clean Wool Garments
Wool garments are a winter clothing essential. They are durable and thick, giving you that extra warmth you need. And, just like any other garment, they need to be cleaned. Since wool is a thicker fabric, it can absorb stains more than other fabrics. The fabric can also fade quite easily. For these reasons, it is highly recommended that you get wool garments professionally cleaned.
Here are some more reasons to consider dry cleaning wool garments.
Although wool is a commonly used fabric, its durability and thickness tends to make it more expensive. And, you want your wool clothing to last long if it’s expensive. If you don’t clean wool, as mentioned before, it is prone to fading, discolouration, and yellowing. Compounding the problem is the fact that, since this damage tends to happen over time, you may not even notice it.
Dry cleaning is a worthwhile investment if you want to keep your wool garment for a long period of time. Think of it this way, you will have the same piece for a few years and not have to buy a new one every few months to a year.
Typically, wool can have a more musty smell to it. Since it is made from sheep fibres, it absorbs moisture in the air that can leave it smelling unpleasantly. Dry cleaning is best for removing these smells, more so than hand washing.
Just like other sensitive fabrics, it is not recommended that wool garments go through a washing machine. They can be easily damaged, potentially leaving you with rips and tears in your clothing. To avoid damage, dry cleaning will delicately handle your clothing while removing any stains or dirt.
