I have been doing a fairly extreme test run of one of the dresses from Wool&: I’ve worn my Rowena Swing Dress every day for the last month, and will continue until I’ve worn it for 100 days in a row. After 30 days, I feel pretty confident recommending it to you. Because it’s mostly wool, I can wear it for multiple days before I need to wash it as long as I hang it up over night. The dress is fresh by morning. It can be washed and dried by machine, but because I’m committed to wear it for 100 days, I want to be gentle with it, so I’m hand washing it in my bathroom sink as needed. After squeezing it in a towel, I hang it up and it’s dry by morning. The dress is comfy and has kept me cool on 94F days. I love it!
