Woolen base layers are designed to be worn next to the skin, providing user comfort by maintaining body temperature and controlling moisture. They are highly wicking (will spread moisture out over a large area), fast drying and breathable. It is therefore essential to maintain these properties when caring for woolen base layers.

Base layers are fantastic for regulating your temperature and controlling body moisture, but to keep them functioning properly care must be taken when washing. It is recommended to wash woolen items in mild liquid detergents and to avoid using powder or bio detergents, which contain enzymes. Using conventional household detergents or fabric softeners can impair wicking properties by causing the fabric to retain moisture. This leads to reduced wicking capabilities and slow drying of the fabric, resulting in reduced user comfort. Additionally, standard household softeners can lead to pilling over a number of washes.

All active people should use base layers to effectively manage body moisture and regulate temperature. Hill walkers, runners, cyclists, and mountaineers are among those who utilize base layers to maintain their comfort whilst active.

Once your base layer has been used a few times wash it with Nikwax Wool Wash™ to refresh, remove odors, soften and enhance drying and cooling. Always apply Nikwax Wool Wash™ to used woolen base layers, socks and travel clothing to keep them in perfect condition.

Using conventional household detergents and fabric softeners will impair the wicking properties of base layer fabrics. Standard household detergents do not stop odors from building up in the fabric when in use. Conventional fabric softeners leave water-hating (hydrophobic) residues that will reduce the performance of the fabric, preventing it from spreading moisture and working to its maximum potential. Nikwax Wool Wash™ outperforms conventional household detergents and fabric conditioners at improving wicking, accelerating drying, and removing and preventing odor build up.

Nikwax Wool Wash™ has been specifically formulated for use when cleaning and conditioning woolen base layers. If you have synthetic base layers make sure you use Nikwax BaseWash® for best results.

Nikwax takes great care to minimize the effect of Nikwax products on the environment and on you, the consumer. All Nikwax conditioning products are WaterBased, non-flammable, non-hazardous, biodegradable, environmentally friendly, and contain no volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

Cleans thoroughly

This product works substantially better than a significantly more expensive product recommended by the washing machine manufacturer. This other product refused to remove body oil that accumulated in an ugly manner over time. A single wash with Nikwax removed this. Can strongly recommend.

Wool wash

Seemed to work well? Never used a wool washing product before but my socks came out fresh.
Drying them takes a longer time than I expected but such is the nature of wool…😄
