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.

Disappointed they don't make a womens lined wool sweater like this. They are expensive but keep you warm. I bought a men's small and it was to tight in the chest and the button hole on the flap is to big for the small button and it keeps popping open. I am not a very big lady so I thought a men's small would fit. 5'6" 135lbs . Its great in length but hard to get on and off as its to slim fitting. I work up a sweat getting it on and adjusted. After a couple hours its not bad kinda stretches out. Make a womens version!!! Tired of having to buy men's clothing.
Definitely a shirt, rather than a sweater
Based on the picture, and the term " Heavy weight ", I was expecting a more substantial knit for the woolen portion. My old Windsor Wear long underwear ( a long departed Stanfield s competitor), has twice the weight to it's weave. Going out shovelling with a -40 windchill (Manitoba) to test it out.
My new everyday garment
I had the plain Wool Henley, it was warm, but it got lost somewhere in my travel's, so I decided to go with the fleece-lined Wool Henley, for the extra you pay it's well worth it, no need for any undergarment, and it is twice as warm," just after I got it the temp dropped to -31 with the windchill, and I had to clear some snow so I put the Henley to the test, it kept me nice and toasty warm", best investment I made in a while. I highly recommend it.
Worth every penny. Warm, and comfortable . Need I say more....
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.
