Caring for your throw

With the proper care, Ruanui Station throws will last for generations. Thanks to the resilient nature of wool, they will rarely need cleaning, just shake and air them in a shady spot outside for a refresh.  

If they are in need of a wash, dry-cleaning is the safest and gentlest option. Alternatively, you can hand wash them with a wool-safe detergent and line dry in the shade, rotating to avoid stretching. Using a washing machine, even on a ‘gentle’, ‘wool’, or ‘hand wash’ cycle, can cause the cuticles of the wool fibres to interlock and stiffen. Improper care will result in shrinkage, as could also affect the colour and texture of your throw. 

Quick Care Guide:
✔   Dry-clean.
✔   Hand wash in cold water.
✔   Dry in shade (rotate to avoid stretching).
✔   Iron on lowest setting if necessary.

   Do not bleach.
✘   Do not machine wash (even on gentle, hand wash, or wool settings).
✘   Do not dry in direct sunlight.
