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.

Not sure if the online sizes for the Womens Henley are based on the mens sizing chart? There is no womens size chart…?
I love my stansfields henleys. I have worn the mens version previously and ordered the womens in the plum color. It is beautiful, functional and fits like a dream.
the perfect outdoor shirt
if you are someone who is outside a lot, this shirt is for you! I wear it almost every night when I go skating at the pond. It will keep you warm no matter where you are, or what you're doing. I do find it a bit scratchy because of the material, so wearing a full length/coverage base layer underneath of it is a must for me!
Women's Heritage Heavy Weight Wool Henley
This is my ultimate outdoor essential item for all activities and temperatures! The Henley helps keep my body temperature regulated and wicks away moisture when I'm working or adventuring outdoors throughout the winter months! I'm either wearing this or have it packed when I'm heading outside. This sweater is rugged and weather tested!
A BC Staple!
The durability of these sweaters is immaculate. I work in forestry in British Columbia and you would be hard pressed to find someone in the field who does not own one (or many) of these. This is a staple in my winter wardrobe and it keeps me dry even when wet. I wear this every single day when the temperatures start to drop. Amazing piece of clothing!!
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.
