I have 2 predominately wool duffel coats. Can i wash in the machine on a wool cycle or do I have to dry clean?

Could you brush tHem & put them outside to air?

Hmm think they could probably do with a proper clean TBH.

Would dry clean then if the label doesn't say machine as they could get all matted in the wash plus take ages to dry.......

I wouldn't wash a woven woollen fabric. The wool cycle is fine for most knitted wool, but woven wool will shrink and felt - and the lining/interlining will be rumpled.
