Putting woolie washability to the test....

Attachment 106558



Attachment 106559

I love our wool but don't want to keep Declan from playing just because he's in them. Usually this does not stress me out, but I think today's gardening might be a little much for the shorties!
They are mama-made and malabrigo wool. Will be giving the wool wash a workout tonight!!!!

LOL! You'll have to let us know how they wash up! I feel like normally wool washes up surprisingly well..but Gabe hasn't even been in that much dirt

Love that! I'm sure they will wash up fine.

My girls were in the garden the other day doing the same thing.

Colleen, Declan is so cute!! We wear our wool out to garden in and they are what my hubby calls a mulch magnet! LOL

Crossing my fingers for you that they wash up well, that is a cute set!!

I usually hand wash our wool in baby wash but on days we have alot accumulated, i just dump everything in the wash on delicate with the baby wash. They turned out fine even the purewool dress.

They are still damp but actually seem impressively clean!!!! Although I might be picking tiny bits of mulch out of them forever.....
