Can wool clothing damaged during intermediate spin in the wool program?



All washing programs have been specially developed for the various tissue types and have been extensively tested in the laboratory.

  • The wool program in your washing machine was mainly tested for wool shrinkage and is suitable for hand washable wool.
  • Wool is very sensitive to movement in the wet state and can shrink when subjected to great mechanics.

The mechanics in the wool program are reduced by:  

  • Low load. (Information on the maximum load quantity can be found in the operating instructions)
  • High water level during washing.
  • Little and gentle movement in the drum.
  • By using wool detergent.

When rinsing wool clothing:

  • Intermediate centrifuging takes place.
  • The wool is laid like a ring on the drum and the wash liquor is carefully removed.
