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...

The bottle came inside a large (tied) plastic bag. Obviously the bag was used as the product seal had broken: 1/3 of the product had leaked out. Thanks to STP for the sealed bag as this is a stinky product.
It does a good job in the wash and does not leave residual odor.

Used on a wood shirt jac and all of my wool socks. Shirt jac was stiff until washed now is soft and comfortable to wear. All of my socks were softer. Ordered another bottle to wash all of my wool items before storing for summer.

I don't like to pay for dry cleaning nor do I like the chemicals involved. I work with horses in the Pacific NW where it is wet, muddy, and cold. My sweaters get filthy. I tried this on my alpaca socks and threw in an old sweater to see how well it would work. The sweater came out beautifully clean and super soft. When I first took it out of the washer, I noticed a faint smell somewhat like mothballs, but it went away completely when the sweater was dry. I then got brave and tried it on cashmere - same great result. My beloved alpaca socks are so soft and fluffy - just like when they were new. I am wondering if this is appropriate for sheepskin. If anyone has tried it, please let me know.
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.
