    Use a well wrung wet clean cloth, put on the shirt and iron over that.

    Hmmm, I've never seen wrinkles in my merino or egyptian cotton stuff, but try hanging in the bathroom while you take a steaming hot shower. Or get a steam iron

    You don't have a 'wool' setting on your iron?

    Any dry cleaners will press them for you and it's cheap. If you iron them yourself, iron over a wet cloth that's placed on top of the garment, and do it quick, to avoid damaging it. I use hot settings for all my natural fabric clothes, low for the synthetics, generally. Another trick, to avoid spoiling the surface of the garment, is to iron it inside-out. This might be best with the wool item.

    Iron it!

    Use lowest [ polyester ] settings, and go for it!

    1] iron collar, and yoke

    2] iron sleeves, and up to shoulder seam

    3] iron left side; back; and right side [ or vice versa ]

    Now, hang it up!

    P.S.Always use the lowest setting that works - or you can scorch or melt the fabric - I usually set it one lower than recommended.
