Wool is a fantastic material that is partly self-cleaning and dirt-repellent.
If you still have to wash, use washing soap and have such hot water that you can hardly put it in your hands. Rinse thoroughly in warm water so that no soap is left. Gently squeeze out of the water, do not twist.
If you have a washing machine where you can choose a program with only spin, you can use it. If not, place them between towels to get rid of most of the water.
Then tighten the gloves firmly so that they are the same size and so that the thumb is good.
You can then roughen them up with, for example, a dog brush with aluminum spikes or another brush.
