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.

It’s great, love the hood
Living up to the name
I purchased this for functional purposes mainly, I really enjoy the warmth of wool. I believe the sizing to be true to how it is described, it came slightly larger and should shrink to proper size once washed. I actually received a compliment right out of the blue about it while out and about. I feel a sense of pride now when I wear this henley knowing that it is Canadian made and what seems to be a high quality product that also is warm and well made.
Super love! Love that the men’s small fits perfectly even though I’m a woman not like the old men’s smalls that were still big and not as fitted feeling… love that there’s no inner panel on the hoodie version… just super love it! Best Christmas present I’ve bought myself yet!
Best work shirt for the real cold
I work in the oil sands of northern Alberta. I frequently work in -40C and below. These are hands down the best and most sought after workwear in the oil patch.
It's like putting on the sweater Nan knit for your birthday. There's a little itch, but a whole lot of warmth. I take it on sailing and surfing trips in the spring and on cool summer mornings/nights. It's my go-to in the winter for shoveling, skiing, or walking to the mailbox.
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.
