How to Wash

Use a normal warm or cool machine wash cycle with regular powder or liquid detergent. Separate light and darks as usual. Don’t use softeners or bleach.


How to Dry

With the exception of socks, hang your garment to dry on the line. You can tumble dry your socks, turned inside out, and on a low heat.


How to Store

Always clean your garments before storing – this helps prevent odors, stains and build-up of dirt. For best results, store folded rather than hung.





FAQ 1: Can I use fabric softener?

We don’t advise it. Using softeners will coat the merino fibers and reduce their natural ability to breathe and regulate moisture and temperature.


FAQ 2: Can I put my Icebreaker Merino in the dryer?

You can put your socks in the tumble dryer, but other garments are best hung to dry on the washing line.


FAQ 3: Can I dry clean my Merino?

Some Icebreaker merino garments are suitable for dry cleaning. Please check the label tag to see if your garment can be dry cleaned.


FAQ 4: Can I iron my Merino?

Merino bounces back into shape easily after washing, so you may find that you don’t need to iron your merino at all. Instead let any creases fall out naturally by laying your garment out flat, or hanging it over the back of a chair. However, if you do need to iron use a cool or specific wool setting and turn your garment inside out.


FAQ 5: Can I bleach wool products?

No – chlorine will destroy merino wool fibers, so please keep it away from your Icebreaker.
