Wool Covers Drying

I’ve got the wool covers done, they’re just drying!

Wool covers, drying

I do have to snicker a bit about the absurdity of drying them on the radiators in May. I dry wool on the radiators in the winter, because that makes sense. In the summer, I prefer to hang them to dry. But I was taking them out of the washer post-lanolizing at about 1 am, and it was pouring rain…so I opted for the radiators, even though it doesn’t really make much sense.

  1. I see that you mention taking them out of the washer… are your wool covers machine washable?

  2. Um, not technically. When I restock, I make several dozen at a time, generally, and I lanolize them in the washer because doing so in the sink would take forever. However, I do wash my own wool covers in the washer – my washer has a hand wash setting and it doesn’t agitate more than about “swish, swish.” I’ve never had a problem with my wool covers on that setting. I have, at times, even tossed them in the dryer on Low, and that’s worked out pretty well, too.

    HOWEVER. Officially, our wool covers (like everyone else’s, and like fine woolens everywhere) are hand-wash.
