Straightening Up the Tuft

During the summer time storage or simply not having that much space in your hall during the winter months when the clothes stand is packed with other chunky winter wraps the woollen tuft of the Eco Furs pieces included may get untidy. No reason for panic; it only takes a couple of minutes to fix it by following the instructions above.

Steam doesn't only make the woollen tuft easy to shape, it also freshens up the textiles by killing bacteria and removing smells. However, I want to highlight the fact that over-doing the steam or pressing the wool with iron/ steamer can destroy wool's elasticity resulting in non-airy tuft. So only bring the iron/ steamer to 2-3cm distance from the garment at closest. Only steam the tuft side of the garment.

- And keep your hands safe, steam is very hot!

Despite wool being warm even when damp it's good to let the garment dry through before wearing it especially in the temperatures below zero degrees Celsius. Also make sure you don't re-store it damp.
