Washing Your New Woolly Jumpers - it's Snow Joke!

We know we’re not the only ones who have ended up with a jumper that looks as if it was made for a small child! The habit of throwing it all in at a 30-40 degree cycle runs deep with many of us! However, if your gorgeous new Christmas jumper contains even as much as 10% merino or cashmere, you can pretty much guarantee that they will end up at the clothing bank too!  

The good news is that despite many people still believing one should only wash wool by hand, you can wash it in a machine too, (provided the specific garment instructions permit it!). With washing machine manufacturers constantly reviewing, updating, and improving their technology and wash cycles, we can all sit back and believe there is a fluffy fairy godmother out there somewhere!


Tis the season to be woolly!

In anticipation of the beautiful jumpers, we are all about to be in receipt of(!) we thought we’d share with you our top tips when it comes to selecting your ideal washing machine

First things first, you need to ask yourself:  
  • What types of clothes and fabrics are you washing most regularly? 
  • How many loads are you washing on a daily, or weekly basis? 
  • Do you need a larger capacity machine? 
  • How quickly do you need your clothes washed?
With washing machines ranging from £200 for a basic model, to £800+ for one with additional features/technology, here’s an outline of some of your favourite branded washing machine manufacturers, and the benefits they offer.​​​​
