Disana recommend hand-washing this cardigan and have told us that gentle machine wool cycles are better than hand washing. We machine-wash ours on a gentle wool cycle at 30°C, which is luke-warm. We leave it up to you to decide what you'll do with yours but do use a liquid detergent for wool or silk which protects wool's natural oils and fibres. This organic Merin wool cardigan is not treated against machine-washing or felting and it is very soft.
The sizing on these wool cardigans was coming up very very big, so we have re-sized them to fit English babies and children. This helps you get the sizing right. In the photos the 6-year old girls are wearing 98/104, not the biggest size.

For school uniform purposes, this wool cardigan comes navy (mid-navy, fairly bright); the red (mid-red); blue (slightly lighter than royal blue) and grey (light rather than dark). We're often asked for pure wool navy cardigans for school uniforms and have had the larger size especially made for us.
