Washing instructions

Wool is a great material for making clothes because it is antibacterial and odor resistant. Woolen clothing therefore does not need to be washed often. Hang the garment outside occasionally to freshen it up. If you still want to wash the garment, we recommend Texelana Wool Detergent . Never rub hard when washing by hand to prevent felting. Always look at the label in the garment for washing instructions. Always let woolen clothing lie flat to dry.

Treating your woolen garment in this way will not only make it more beautiful and last longer. By airing instead of washing you also save the environment.

Store woolen clothes

We recommend that you store your woolen clothing clean, possibly with a bag of lavender; this keeps the moths at bay. It is also best to store woolen clothing lying down, so that the elasticity of the wool is not affected.

Pills and fluff

Wool can pill or pill due to use. This has nothing to do with the quality of the wool. Pilling is a natural phenomenon that is mainly caused by friction. Wool consists of many hairs with a natural frizz (curl). Friction can cause the wool to pill and felt. When felting, the hairs join together due to friction. In fact, every movement causes friction. You often find the lint/pills on the sleeves and under the armpits.

New clothing may sometimes have some loose hairs left behind after the weaving and knitting process.

Unfortunately, pills and lint on your beautiful (merino) woolen clothing cannot be prevented. We have some tips on how to delay this process somewhat and how to remove the lint and pills. For this information we refer to our blog.

GY collection

In 1946, when the Ivanhoe company was founded, the name was Gällstads Ylle. The emphasis at the time was on knitted fashion for women. A few years ago, some old favorite models were put back into production and modern materials and techniques were applied to them. Thus the GY collection was born.

About Ivanhoe

The Ivanhoe family business was founded in 1946 in Gällstad, a district known as the knitting center of Sweden and where tradition and entrepreneurial spirit still live on. Several generations of experience and competence result in the continuous development of basic and functional clothing. Classic materials such as wool and cotton can always be found in the collections, but new blends, treatments or knitting and weaving techniques are also used.
