Merino Care

 

Caring for your Merino is simple, but as with all natural fibres, the more you look after it the longer it will look after you.

One of the best ways to prolong the life of your shirt is to wash it sparingly, after every three to four rounds. Don’t worry, we don’t have hygiene issues, it’s simply because Merino wool is a highly resilient fibre with anti-odour and anti-bacterial properties, and therefore washing is not required after every wear. Simply allow your shirt to air overnight and it will be ready for another round.

Washing

  • All Ramsie Golf Shirts are machine washable.

  • For best results turn your shirt inside out and wash with similar colours on a gentle cycle at a low temperature.

  • If possible, we highly recommend placing your shirt in a laundry wash bag. This will help your shirt to retain its shape and protect the fibres from from rubbing and snagging on zips and other items.

  • Do not use bleach or fabric conditioner.

Drying

  • As soon as your shirt has been washed lay it flat on a towel, reshape and allow to dry in shade away from heat sources such as radiators.

  • Do not wring or tumble dry.

  • Merino wool retains its shape easily after washing, but if further reshaping is required turn your shirt inside out and warm steam iron using a pressing cloth or cotton towel.

Pilling

  • Pilling is a natural process that occurs when the shorter fibres make their way to the surface of the fabric and form small balls.

  • The best way to prevent pilling is to wash your shirt within the first three to four wears.

  • Should pilling occur, wash your shirt with a coarse fabric such as denim which will remove the shorter fibres.
