As an environmentally conscious consumer, you have chosen sustainable fashion that is not only good for the environment, but also for you and your family. Your fair women's clothing and sustainable household textiles are an investment that you value and want to protect. Here are some tips on how to properly store your organic wool over the summer.

Spring is finally here and it's time to put away your winter clothes. Many of us have purchased expensive, sustainable clothing to reduce our environmental footprint while being stylish. But sustainable clothing also needs care in order to last longer. Moths love wool and if we don't store our precious wool garments properly, they will feed on them.


Before you put your clothes in the closet or box, make sure they are clean. Wash your organic clothing according to label instructions. Use a mild and ecologically friendly detergent. If you have your clothes professionally cleaned, you should make sure that the cleaning product is also environmentally friendly.


Make sure your clothes are completely dry before packing them away. Allow them to air dry and lay them flat on a clean surface or clothesline or rack. This drying process is important to ensure that it retains its original shape.

Because wool can absorb a lot of water and the wool washing cycle has a low spin speed, which is also important so that the wool doesn't break. Due to the amount of water absorbed, wool can warp or wear out.


 Use breathable fabric bags or boxes to store your sustainable clothing. These help maintain air circulation and prevent mold growth. Avoid using plastic bags as they can trap moisture and encourage mold growth.

Natural moth repellent

Moths love wool and can damage your clothing. Therefore, use natural moth repellents such as dried herbs and plants. Lavender is probably the best-known herb that works against moths and is often used. Alternatively, you can also use thyme, rosemary, mint, woodruff, boar's rue, sweet clover or cedar wood. These dried herb sachets can be placed between clothes to repel moths. However, it is important to ensure that the herbs are dry as moisture can lead to mold growth.

Regular review

Check your organic wool clothing regularly to ensure there are no signs of moths or mold. If you notice any signs, you should immediately remove the affected clothing and treat it accordingly.


Properly storing your sustainable wool in summer can help it last longer and stay in good condition. Thoroughly clean your clothing, allow it to dry completely, and use breathable wraps to ensure it is well protected.

Carefully storing our sustainable clothing during the summer months will help extend its lifespan and ensure we can continue to wear it for years to come.
