Wool works best at its most natural, so Sonoma Wool Co. chooses to wash their Wool with biodegradable soap and they never use chemicals or synthetics. Because their Wool is not carbonized, you may see bits of residual vegetation in this products and color may vary.
Care: * Wool is naturally mold and mildew resistant. This is because of its unique molecular structure allowing air to pass through its fibers. However, if it remains saturated for any length of time, wool, just like any material, may get moldy. The Dish Drying Mat needs to fully dry between uses, which will naturally occur when kept on counter. If your wool dish drying mat is heavily used to the point of saturation, hang the mat between uses to increase air flow. If needed, your mat may be spot cleaned with a mild soap in tepid water. Dry flat. Do not machine wash. Linen sleeve may be machine washed and air-drying is recommended to maximize its lifetime.
