Washing instructions for our wools

Pollux & Pénélope designer Isabelle Bonnet tested each of our wools for washing as she researched the models made for her dog Rio.

For all of the Pollux & Pénélope sweaters, we recommend hand-washing the first time. After that you can machine-wash using the wool cycle at 30°C only.

    • Hand-wash
    • Machine-wash, wool cycle
    • Do not tumble dry
    • Lay flat to dry
    • Do not iron
    • Dry clean


  • Soak the sweater in warm water with a bit of special detergent for woolens.
  • After about 15 minutes rinse it gently with warm water without twisting, then roll it up in a dry towel so that a maximum amount of water is absorbed.
  • Next place it on a clean towel until it finishes drying.


All our wools are machine-washable using the wool cycle in warm water at 30°C maximum.

To dry your dog’s sweater after washing it in the machine, lay it flat on a dry towel.

What not to do

  • Do not boil the sweater.
  • Do not use bleach.
  • Do not dry the sweater in the sun.
  • Do not iron.

If there is a spot

For a simple spot (dirt, mud) rub the spot with Savon de Marseille; leave it on for 30 minutes, then rinse with warm water.

Washing recommendations for our coats

All our coats are machine-washable using the delicate cycle in warm water at a temperature of 30°C maximum.

To dry your dog’s coat after washing it in the machine, place it flat on a dry towel.

Upkeep recommendations for leather accessories

Vegetable-tanned leather

The leather used for Pollux & Pénélope collars and leashes has a natural tendency to darken over time. However, on contact with dog hair, hands and air pollution, it can become soiled.

  • Lightly soak a piece of cotton with colorless Crème Universelle Leather Balm (Saphir)
  • Rub the entire surface of the leather evenly, then polish with another piece of clean cotton.

Be careful not to use too much cream on the cotton when you start.
