Winters are synonymous with beautiful woollen shawls making an appearance after a long hiatus. Most of them are of fine quality and finish and showcase elaborate designs. However, we have noticed that over time our woollen shawls tend to lose their softness, structure and shape. Old shawls may even carry an odd musty and lingering smell that makes us want to refrain from wrapping them around ourselves.
This winter, we wanted to bring the original lustre, appearance, and softness back to our woollen shawls. After some trial and error, we were able to come up with the perfect solution to make our woollen shawls feel and look like new. Check out the step-by-step procedure we followed for this process.
Check the Garment Care Label
We have learnt that the type of fabric determines the washing method. Woollen shawls too, can be of different kinds- pashmina, merino, angora, blended, cashmere etc. Their care label mentions whether they can be hand washed, machine washed or only dry cleaned.
If the label mentions hand wash or machine wash, then proceed with the steps given below.
