When the time does come to wash your Merino, we’ve got some tried-and-true tips on how to wash wool socks and clothing.
Turn socks and garments inside out.
Machine-wash on gentle cycle in warm or cool water (avoid hot water as heat may shrink wool).
Use mild soap, no bleach or fabric softener (bleach destroys the Merino wool fibers, and fabric softener coats those fibers—reducing their ability to naturally manage moisture and regulate body temperature).
While you can tumble-dry most of our Merino, we recommend air-drying to reduce your environmental impact and further extend the life of each product. Dry your wool clothes by laying them flat (hanging wet wool may distort the shape).If you prefer the dryer, tumble-dry on low setting.And, as always, check the care label. A few of our products still shouldn’t be dried in the dryer.
Some of our jackets and vests contain a DWR (durable water repellent) finish that is great for helping to keep you dry. Over time, dirt and oil accumulation may reduce the effectiveness of DWR, making it less water-repellent. Occasional cleaning will help keep your DWR working efficiently. However, it’s a bit of a balance. The DWR treatment will eventually wash off with repeated laundering and will need to be reapplied.
Intraknit™ apparel is odor-resistant and typically can be worn for multiple activities without washing.
Cold water is more gentle on garments and uses less energy.
Intraknit™ apparel doesn’t take long to air dry and laying it flat helps retain garment shape.
Moths are attracted to body and food smells left in the fibers after wearing.
Balling up socks can distort the shape. We recommend storing sweaters flat, too.
This helps protect your clothes, keeping them in tip-top condition. If your wool clothes are in storage for a year or more, it’s a good idea to let them air out for a bit before re-packing for storage.
The heartwood of cedar helps keep out moths and other creatures that potentially harm your hibernating clothes.
Items made of 100% wool can be ironed on a low setting. It’s best to turn the item inside out.
Apparel made from a blend of wool and synthetic fibers shouldn’t be ironed.
We recommend steaming them to get out any wrinkles—you can even put
those garments on a hanger in the bathroom while you shower.
Be sure to check the care instructions tag on each garment.
Sometimes. Be sure to check the tag on the individual item. Most wool clothes can be dry-cleaned,
but keep in mind that dry cleaning reduces the lifespan of any garment.

Merino wool is a natural fiber and biodegradable. After mile of trails or countless runs on the slopes, your socks may show some signs of wear. Once your socks have reached the end of their lifespan, you can incorporate a little upcycling and use them to keep your beverages warm or cold. Simply take some scissors, cut the sock above the heel, and use that top part around your favorite water bottle, coffee mug, or pint glass.
Every product is different. Many Smartwool® products are made of 100% Merino wool, while some are blended with other materials for maximum performance. For specific content information,
