Woolmark-approved garments that have a care claim that states ‘tumble dry’ can be tumble dried on a low heat setting or a setting for wool or delicates. It is advised to use a tumble dryer that has been approved by The Woolmark Company.
You may also notice that your wool garment’s sew-in label says Machine Wash. This means your Woolmark-certified garment can safely be machine washed in a washing machine multiple times, without shrinkage taking place.
