Removing iron on letters from wool jersey

Received Sugoi wool jersey with heat applied letters on it. Need to remove the letters. How to do this? It is a merino wool jersey. Found instructions on line for general fabrics, nothing specific to wool.

The only way I can think of would be to buy another one just like it but without the lettering for spare parts, and then just use it instead of the one with the lettering.

Be Careful...

I wear wool, and only have experience harming it. Either through use, neglect (allow moth damage), or shrinking, my track record speaks for itself.

My advice, ride it as is. The Sugoi lettering isn't too obnoxious.

Or...change your name to "Sugoi"? Just a thought...

I have a Sugoi wool jersey with the letters on too and they've never been a problem. No one's ever made a negative comment about Sugoi, at least not that I've heard. Why do you feel you "need" to remove them?

Unless . . . Sugoi has some really negative meaning of which I'm not aware . . .

Thanks, guys. The lettering is not Sugoi. I guess I will either grin and bear it or give it to someone.

If I really had to remove them, I'd heat from the opposite with a steam iron and pull them off when hot. Then I'd iron on some scrap fabric with nap and remove it while hot to remove as much as the adhesive as possible from the fabric. And then iron any remaining adhesive in and attempt to get it to dissipate into the fabric. Results may vary.

If you put Sugoi (すごい) into google translate, it comes out as "Amazing" in Japanese.

BTW, with my limited knowledge of the Japanese Hiragana character set, that first character is "tsu." So to say "amazing" in Japanese, you would pronounce it "tsugoi."
