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...

I purchased this along with merino wool base layer underwear. As soon as I took the cap off I could smell the product, the fragrance is strong. In most cases the smell would'nt matter but this will be used to wash base layers for archery hunting. Archery hunting garments will have to be washed well in advanced of the season to be given plenty of time to air out outside. Hopefully the product will enhance the merino wools moisture wicking properties as described. The rating is based on smell not performance, thats yet to be determined

So I bought a merino wool sweater on ebay, from the description it sounded like the guy owned it but when I received it the smell was most assuredly thrift store. So I grabbed my wool wash and washed it. When it came out it had the most awful smell, worse than wet dog. I was so bummed. I tried hand washing it with shampoo and running through a rinse cycle, that didn't work. So I had something with the smell of wool wash, wet hair from your sink drain, and pert plus. Finally I decided to do what I do with my towels, 1 cup vinegar in the first wash, 1 cup of baking soda in the second rinse cycle. Came out with the smell of water, yes water like if you smell a glass of tape water. Save your money and don't use this. I will not anymore.
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.

If your cap is wool I would say yes, Nikwax Wool Wash would 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.
