    100% in for Minnis Flannel group buy

    @DavidLane - since we never were able to work through the other two frescos - do you think Luxire would be open to a flannel group buy? It's gonna start getting cooler fellas.

    Agreed! I will send an email to inquire.

    I’ve got another idea in the works which I will be posting on soon. Sorry for the lack of details but I want to get my sample piece in first. Should be good for the fall too.

    You wash wool pants at home? In a washing machine? I was always under the impression that wool garments are dry clean only and washing them any other way would damage/wreck them. is this not true? I would love to wash my wool pants at home to avoid the harsh chemicals involved in dry cleaning.

    Not is a machine. Usually just rinse in plain water or sometimes using mild detergent. Then, I dry them flat. I do not wring them.
    Ironing well is important and I get that done professionally.

    Washing machine and strong detergents will certainly wreck them.
    I have met customers who only steam their woolens and then iron.
    Some in northern Europe also said they never wash. Just hang them and let the natural disinfectant in wool work.
    Everyone has their own little trick.

    Worth trying initially with old or the less favored garments.

    Manufacturers and mills say that wool should be dry cleaned. That remains our official line too.
