Does all wool clothing have to be dry cleaned?

    No!  There are plenty of machine-washable wool garments.  Right now, for example, I am wearing Smartwoold socks, which can be washed in a washing machine.  Smartwool also sells sweaters that are machine washable.

    Though technically wool should always be dry cleaned, there are ways around this.  Stores like Wal-Mart or Sears, etc, will typically sell at home wool cleaning kits.  There are also ways to clean wool without these specific kits.  Unless it is a stain, most things can be cleaned from wool using a fabric brush.  When hand cleaning wool, use a mild detergent and room-temperature water….never hot.  More advice can be found at the below site.
