How to Wash and Dry Snugglewool and Mediwool Baby Blankets, Mattress Pads, Lap Robes, etc.

by Barbara 25. September 2011 12:24

Question about best way to wash and dry Snugglewool products such as mattress pads, baby blankets, wheelchair cushion covers, etc.

Q: "Please let me know how to wash and dry Snugglewool products. I don't want to ruin my new Mediwool queen mattress pad. Thanks Judy.

Answer: We recommend a mild detergent or one specifically for use with wool. Since lambswool is naturally disinfecting, you don't need warm water. or heated drying.  All SnuggleWool and Mediwool products are packed with washing instructions. Machine wash on a gentle cycle in cool water with a mild detergent. Fluff in the dryer on an air setting and then air dry.  Lambswool also resists the development of bacteria and dust mites. We do not recommend washing with items. The friction and agitation of the wool fibers against the other clothing will cause more clumping of the wool which means less "fluffiness."

Thank you for your question.

Sincerely, Barbara

Real Lambswool Wheelchair Cushion Cover and Arm Rest Covers Superior to Synthetic for Comfort

by Barbara 15. May 2011 09:17

Question about the Lambswool Covers for Wheelchair Arm Rests and for Lambswool Wheelchair Covers for Wheelchair Cushions.

Q: "I want my mother's wheelchair to be as comfortable as possible. What is the advantage of real lambswool over synthetic? How large are your Rittenhouse Mediwool lambs wool arm rest covers and cushion covers? Thanks. Sandy.

Answer:  The natural lambswool products we sell are made from a very soft lambswool sliver knit into a polyester backing. That means that the products are machine washable. They can be air dried or dried on delicate in your dryer.  Natural lambswool is absorbent yet keeps arms cooler in hot weather and warmer in cold weather. The lambs wool helps to prevent pressure sores as well as making the surfaces more comfortable for arms and backside. Lambswool is a naturally disinfecting fiber so heat is not needed to disinfect. Plus lambswool resists bacteria and dust mite development. Artificial lambwool does not have these qualities. The lambswool looks and feels like a one inch lamb pelt without the problems associated with that, i.e. no machine washing and a lamb dies to give the pelt.  Mediwool merino wool products by Rittenhouse Industries and Snugglewool are Made in USA.

The cushion cover measures 19 inches by 19 inches so it fits most wheelchair cushions. The arm rest covers measure 18 inches long by 8 inches around and are secured by velcro strieach velcro closure is 4 inches in from the end. The closure strip itself is 3/4 inch wide and about 1 5/8 inches long. The strip attaches to a sewn on strip that is about 1.25 inches long. That means you get the full 8 inches for the wheelchair arm rest.

If you have more questions, please contact Safe Home.

Thanks for your question.

Barbara
