As bundling up becomes more frequent as the weather cools down, our jackets get more use. Proper care of your wool coat is vital to prevent wear and tear and keep it in your wardrobe for years to come. Whether it’s a pea coat or a trench coat, wool jackets have been a wardrobe staple for both men and women and we’ve got all the steps to keeping them as good as new.
Wool is an organic material. While it is durable, it can still collect germs and dirt. Depending on how often it is worn, you should wash your jackets at least once a month.
Most wool jackets come with a delicate lining that makes it difficult to wash in a regular washing machine. We recommend Dryel At-Home Dry Cleaning Kit. In as little as 15 minutes you can freshen your wool coat in just 3 easy steps.
To dry your wool coat all you need to do is simply hang it up on a wooden hanger. This will allow any remaining stubborn wrinkles to fall out.
Once the cold weather season is over it is important to properly store your garments. If you have room in your closet you can hang your wool jacket on a wooden hanger and place it in a garment bag. If you need more space in your closet you can store your jacket as well. First make sure all buttons and zippers are closed. Then carefully fold the wool coat with acid free paper and store in an airtight container.
