Do I have to iron the linen shirt?

It depends.. Some people like the look of washed linen and some prefer their linen ironed. I personally have a linen shirt that I wear to nice events that I iron and one that is my every-day shirt that I hang-dry on a hanger and stretch a little. No ironing. The fabric gets a little stiffer and if feels more formal when it has been ironed. It’s softer unironed.

Does the wool itch?

It depends.. Compared to the old wool shirts that they used back in the day, no! Compared to Merino wool.. maybe.. I don’t think it itches and most people comment on the fact that it’s not itchy. If you are very sensitive to wool, it might be itchy to you..

How do I wash the shirts?

Wash your shirts on gentle and hang-dry. No dryer! Wool on wool cycle. No need to hand-wash.

Will the shirt shrink?

It depends.. Maybe a tiny bit. But very very little.. We have not had any customers tell us that their shirt shrank.
