Wool is one of the oldest fibre types used here at Stanfield’s and one that has certainly proven it can stand the test of time.
To get the longest and most vibrant life out of your wool garments there are some additional steps to add to your normal laundry routine.
In general, we recommend washing in cold water (30°C), laying flat to dry and to reshape the layer(s). This will allow the fibres to recover to their original shape and bring out the best of the natural resilience and spring of wool. Do not bleach your wool.
Once your wool is completely dry, it can be aired out inside or outside for a fresh new start. We recommend gently folding and storing your knitted wool garments in drawers as a best practice.
Your wool can be machine dried but does run the risk of shrinking if done. We always recommend laying flat to dry whenever possible. If you choose to iron your wool, always do it at a low temperature (never exceeding 110°C). For professional dry-cleaning, dry-clean, normal cycle, any cycle other than trichloroethylene.
But what about moths? If you are storing your wool long-term and not using regularly or storing in your daily-use closet, there are precautionary steps you can take to best store your garments. Food stains and body oils can attract moths. Before long-term storage, ensure your garment is clean and always store in airtight bags or containers. You may also choose to apply a moth repellent to your garments but remember not to place them directly on the garment.

Heavy weight underwear
When winter arrives this should resolve my issues. These are 2 to 3 times heavier than my prior sets. Apart from your site I could not locate these at any merchant in the region. Only lite weight seem to be carried and no one suggested these were a special order item.
Heavy weight wool Henley
I bought the classic Henley as a Christmas gift for my son, who has seen me wear mine for 22 of the 30 years I have owned one, and requested one of his own. While they get misshapen from washing over time, they still provide warmth and comfort while sawmilling, hunting and sledding. It has become my go to article for cold weather activities.
Nothing compares to a wool Stanfields shirt for the sharp cold of the north. It fits true to size and lasts for years.
Fits True to Size
These are great. It's incredibly difficult to find wool sweaters that have a correct fit for layering. These fit perfectly. Nearly all other sweaters bunch up in the armpits, but these don't. Sizing: I am 6' tall, 180lbs, 41" chest, 34" waste pant size, athletic/thinner build. The large fits me perfectly after a wash (following the instructions). I scoured the internet for good sizing information and found nothing, so hopefully this helps someone.
Charles E. Stanfield had no idea when he immigrated to Canada in 1855 that he would found the firm would become recognized as Canada's leading manufacturer of men's underwear.
