Gentle wash to refresh merino’s natural performance

Rapha Merino Wash has been specially formulated for Rapha merino products, with a gentle action that cleans without stripping out the natural oils that are the key to merino’s performance. Used regularly, the wash will remove dirt and refresh merino garments thanks to ingredients that include Rapha’s Ventoux fragrance. Inspired by the plants and herbs that grow on the slopes of the ‘Giant of Provence’, the wash also has natural Cedar extract to help repel moths.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It cleans - but nothing special Used this a couple of times now. The merino garments are clean enough, but there is no particular fragrance and the wash is expensive compared to other similar products

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb aftercare product I aways like to look after my cycling clothing and equipment as well as possible. The Merino wash refreshes and cleans the wool garments really well. I use the Merino wash at home and take it with me on bike trips. The product transports easily, and measures in the bottle cap, making it simple to use for either machine or hand washing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful, a must I've been using Rapha Merino Wash for several years (since it became available) on all Rapha merino products, and other brands as well. I constantly receive compliments on my "new" items, even though I've had them -and used them- for at least 1-2 years. Absolutely worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well Bought it to complement my club jerseys. Have used as machine & hand wash. Does the job. Cedar extract hopefully acts as a moth deterrent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great product Bought to use on my new Classic Jersey, great stuff...let the jersey soak for a bit in the sink with a capful and it comes out like new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well for merino wool Excellent scent, maintains the product well over time. This is much less harsh on wool and I exclusively use it for merino.

I can see that it's 250ml but how much do you need for each wash, per instructions

Asked by: Paulie23
Hi, for a full wash in a machine, it is 50ml. For hand washing, half a cap is fine.
