Frequently asked questions

FAQ / How to wash a Schoffel gilet?

Most Schoffel gilets are machine washable.

Individual care instructions can be found on the label inside the garment.

Fleece Gilets

Schoffel’s premium fleece gilets deserve the correct care in order for it to last a long time. They can be machine washable at max 40 degrees, and it is best to avoid the tumble drier, to protect the Alcantara trim.

Merino Wool Gilets

Merino wool should be washed on a delicate machine wash with similar colours, at no more than 40 degrees. Merino wool likes to be stored flat, to help retain its shape.

Please remember:

  • Do not tumble dry when washing merino wool, as this may cause the gilet to shrink.
  • Do not dry clean or wring, but reshape when damp and dry away from direct heat and sunlight.

Lambswool Gilets

Lambswool gilets require more of a gentle hand wash approach.

  • The safest way to wash your lambswool jumper is a hand wash.
    Turn your item of clothing inside out
  • Submerge in a lukewarm water and a gentle wool wash product.
  • Do not stretch, rub or wring the garmet.
  • Rinse in lukewarm water and repeat as necessary until the water runs clear.
  • It is recommended to keep the water temperature constant throughout hand washing to prevent the fibres constricting with a change in temperature.
  • Gently press the wate rout and lay the garment out on a clean, dry towel.
  • Roll up the towel and press to squeeze any excess water out.
  • Unroll the towel and smooth the garment into its original shape

If you have a wool setting on your washing machine, you can also wash lambswool on this setting, as long as it is a low temperature and a low spin.
