Nikwax products are in general very good for your expensive 1st world gear. The wool wash is great on newer merino stuff and older traditional wool. I have a couple of old Scottish sweaters that were really abrasive and Wool Wash smoothed it out and softened after a few washes. It's the only way y...

kind of as strange fragrance. I use less than suggested. using the recommended amount causes over-sudsing, a sure sign of over-user. start with 1/2 r3ecommended amount and go from there. very delicate cycle only!!!

My experience with this product is very positive (and no bad scent like some have noticed). I have several wool base layer pieces and wool socks which turn out so soft and clean with this. I think it works much better than regular detergent for those items. I also washed a merino wool-cashmere sweater with it that turned out beautifully. The pills are gone or at least minimized so that it looks like new. Very pleased.

I ordered the Nikwax Wool Wash to use with a merino wool base layer and some merino wool socks I use frequently. Opened the box to find a pair of Women's SmartWool socks instead.
The socks were a women's size small, and I kept them since they'll fit my 5yr old son for awhile. Not sure how the difference between a pair of socks and a bottle of laundry detergent can slip through the QC cracks.
Can't beat the savings you get shopping at Sierra Trading Post. Maybe that's the tradeoff....
I wash mine in Nikwax wool wash. Just follow the instructions on the Nikwax container. I always get great results. It will extent the life of your wool and leave then so soft. If you have any more questions you can call customer service. The 1-800 number is on the Nikwax bottle.

Sweaters get soaked in Nikwax, in my final rinse I add a spot of hair conditioner (advice from on NPR interview). Dry on a rack. They come out beautiful.
Jackets and coats go to a cleaners.

I washed a cashmere sweater by hand one time and regretted it. It just wasn't the same.
However, with the same sweater, I washed it again, only this time I used Nikwax Wool Wash. I had nothing to lose. I swear the sweater has been rejuvenated. I even washed it in the machine on delicate. I air-fluffed it with no heat and laid it out to dry. I normally wouldn't recommend washing a cashmere sweater, but I did see how Nikwax rejuvenated the sweater I previously washed and ruined in another well-known American wool wash.

It depends on what kind of wool or the wool-content of your cap. The product is for the following wool types: "merino wool, wool socks and wool base layers". If your cap is 100% wool I would say yes, this product is made to work on it too.

I use it for all of my wool and wool blends - base layers, socks, sweaters and outerwear. Gentle cycle or hand wash; lay flat or hang dry is how I wash my caps.
