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.

Chill chaser super wash leggings
Such a warm comfortable legging. Rear bottom could be a little longer but still very good product. I’ve had these before and have found them to keep me warm. They are thin enough to wear under dress pants and still be a great insulator against the cold. I love them.
Grand confort, chaleur maximale!
Mes leggins me font parfaitement. Mon petit ventre de fin de quarantaine est bien heureux dans le petit surplus de tissus vers l'avant! Je mesure 5'1'', je pèse 120 lbs. J'ai pris un médium et il me va très bien. Il faut les porter sous des pantalons un peu "lousses" et non pas s'attendre à avoir un ''fit'' de leggins moulant. Ils sont beaucoup plus chaud que mes leggins Icebreaker 175.
I love the light warmth of these longs. Unlike the previous reviewer, I don't find them too loose, the length is generally good, but I do agree that the back is not long enough. I am 5' 6" and got a medium. My derriere is long but flat. The shortage at the back will be problematic, with a draft created. You really should address this issue.
Strange fit, nice fabric
These long-johns are shaped very strangely. I am 5'0, 100lbs, my waist is 26.5", my hips are 34", my inseam is 28". I took a Small. There is extra fabric that bunches and gathers around the top of the leg/crotch area. (not like the photo) They don't really fit like leggings, so they wont be suitable to wear under skinny jeans. The elastic at the top is also not like the photo displayed. The fabric gathers at the top and folds OVER an elastic waist, making it bulky, it is not a bare elastic that would have a slim profile. They ride down in the back and are high in the front when wearing at my natural waist. At first I thought that I had put them on backwards, so I flipped them around and had the exact same fit. This leads me to believe that the shape of the garment does not allow for a bottom, or have any difference between front/back and simply joints two pieces that are identically cut. The length is good (not too long) and the fabric seems warm and durable. I will wear them under baggy pants, but Stanfeild's you need to work on your design! Women's shapes are not just scaled down men!
Hello Thank you for purchasing Stanfield’s women’s base layer and for your feedback on the fit. Our customer comments are very important to us. Super wash wool is a classic fabric in our base layer assortment; we have been making this fabric since the late 1800’s. Because there is no spandex in this fabric, the garment cannot fit as tightly as a typical legging would be expected to fit…the garment is very close fitting but not tight fitting. The fabric relies on the mechanical stretch of the rib and for that reason, we have to allow extra ease for movement. In addition, the fabric is wool so there is some shrinkage to be expected and it will fit tighter once you have washed the fabric. The shrinkage would take up some, but not a lot of the extra fabric. Based on your body specs, I feel that the size small would be slightly larger on you than expected since you are at the bottom range of our small hip which is 34-36”. Unfortunately, we don’t make an XS in our base layer products. We do apologize for the error in the description which indicates the waistband is a single layer of elastic. That is not correct and we are updating the site to match the garment you received which is with covered elastic.
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.
