Here are specific instructions for caring for your Ridge Merino wool products:

 

Wash

        Machine Wash Warm (40° C)

    • Wash with like colors together (separate lights and darks)
    • Use regular detergent
    • Do not use hot water - use only warm or cool water

Dry

       Line Dry in shade (Recommended)

or

       Tumble Dry Low

We recommend line drying, despite Ridge performing well in the dryer, to enhance the longevity of the Ridge clothing you love.  Ultra-fine Merino garments can be damaged by zippers or heavy trims on other items in the dryer. If you tumble dry, use the low tempature setting and dry your Ridge Merino seperately or with like garments to avoid any unwanted wear and tear.  

Bleach

        Do not use Bleach  

    • Never!  Do not use Bleach.

Fabric Softener

    • Do not use Fabric Softener.

Iron

       Iron on "Wool" setting (or max 150° C)

    • Iron on "Wool" setting (or max 150° C)
    • Do not iron on prints or labels

Dry Clean

   Professional Dry Cleaning

    • Professional Dry Cleaning is totally fine if that's the way you roll.

More Care Info:

 
Ridge's Removable Labels
Ridge Merino baselayers are designed to be comfortable against your skin, so any tags in the garments are removable – simply tear them out if you don’t want them. If you choose to rip them out, please note the care instructions or reference ridgemerino.com if you forget.
 
Lightweight Fabric Care
Lighter wool fabrics may take a little longer to shed their creases. Remove wrinkles by ironing with a damp cloth or steam iron on a warm iron/dot 2 setting.
 
Pilling
Pilling is a natural process with Merino fabric. Basically, the shorter fibers in the wool will work their way to the surface of the fabric. Although the fabric will improve over time as it's washed, gradually removing these fibers, it's recommended washing with a heavy fabric like a pair of jeans from time to time to help remove these shorter fibers. Just make sure any zippers that could cause damage are closed and not exposed to the Merino wool fabric.
