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.

Merino wool leggings
Only regret that I waited so long to order this. Wears well, washes well, wonderfully warm either on it’s own as leggings or for layering. I’m 5’2” so yes it’s loong in the leg for me but still who cares if it’s a bit baggy at the ankles with boots on. I ordered a 2x and have learned just how seriously generously stretchy a 2x with Stanfield’s is. Pretty sure ‘L’ would have been adequate. I ordered the same 2x with a wool shirt for myself and found out a ‘L’ has ample enough room.
Well Done Stanfield
I was very impressed with the service received from this company. I ordered their Merino Wool base layer top and bottom for my daughter in law for Christmas. She researches all her purchases and wants to shop ethically. I was more than pleased with the quality and customer service I received. I will be happy to recommend them to anyone. Thank you Elaine Ellison Buck horn Ontario
Love these! Excellent quality and feel awesome on bare skin, with NO itchiness!
Worth the splurge
I took a chance on these based on the other reviews and I'm so glad I did! I bought the Medium size which fits my 30" waist and 38" hips very well. The hips and thighs are comfortably roomy without being baggy, and the fabric has a surprising amount of stretch so I don't have to worry about tearing the fabric during activity. They are a light to medium weight, but opaque enough that you could wear them on their own as tights. They provide a very warm base layer, highly recommended.
Look good, fit well, very comfortable Wearing them as leggings Very good value
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.
