Washing your KuSan Hat Woolly hats, gloves and scarves donât like washing machines! So wash by hand using lukewarm water and a gentle detergent. Rinse thoroughly with cool water to remove all traces of soap. Squeeze gently to remove excess water. Do NOT wring your hat. To dry, lay the garment on a flat surface, reshaping if necessary and allow to dry naturally away from direct sunlight and heat. Donât hang your hat to dry. This will cause the wool fabric to stretch from the weight of the water that has soaked into the fibres. Never put wool clothing in the dryer! The combination of heat, friction and pressure will cause shrinkage.
Refreshing If you would rather not wash your hat, itâs good to know that wool garments can be refreshed after unpacking or wearing by hanging them in a steamy bathroom. Moisture from the steam will remove wrinkles.
Long term storage Unless you want to wear your woolly hat in the summer, you will probably pack it away with the rest of your winter woollies. Since food stains and body oils are tasty(!) to pesky moths, make sure your wool garments are clean before packing them away in airtight bags or containers.
If ever you fall out of love with your KuSan... Always consider a new life for your old hat and think of recycling it!
