TAKE GOOD CARE OF ME WHILE I'M YOURS
Our products are designed to last.
However, we need your help while the garment is yours.
Here you'll find care instructions and tips & tricks on how to take care of you garment so that it can last as long as possible.
WASHING AND DRYING
Stains: stains should be removed before washing the garment. Use stain remover products meant for wool or put a mild soap mixed with a drop of water directly on the stain, mix to get foam but carefully so it doesn't felt. Leave for a little while before rinsing with water.
Wash by hand: max. 30 degrees C warm water, use mild washing detergent with a neutral PH level (7), do not use softener. In order to avoid discolouration be sure the washing detergent is properly dissolved in the water before adding the garment, squeeze gently so it doesn't felt. Wool should never be left for a long time in water. Don't leave for longer than 10-15 minutes in the soapy water, before changing the water. Change the water several times until there's no more soap left.
Machine wash: the wool program on a modern washing machine might actually be more gentle to your woollen garment than traditional hand wash. use a mild washing detergent and don't use softener. may be centrifuged on a low speed if the garment is inside a laundry wash bag .do not tumble dry
Drying: lay flat in the shape wanted. if eg. too short or narrow, the garment may now be stretched and shaped gently before it dries.
Ironing: may be steamed or ironed gently with a light towel in between the garment and the iron.
Tips & tricks to save energy: Remember that the temperature put in the care label is the maximum washing temperature and all garments may in most cases perfectly well be washed on a lower temperature without getting less clean. By washing on a lower temperature you will save water and energy.
Tips & tricks to save water: Wool is cleansing itself to a certain degree and doesn't need to be washed often. leave in a humid room, like the bathroom while you're having a shover, or hang outside on a cold winter day.
Tips & tricks when traveling: if you don't have a washing detergent with you, you may use a mild hair shampoo to wash your clothes, but only when washing by hand.
Tips & tricks for JEANS: put your cotton jeans in the freezer instead of washing it. That will remove smell and bacterias, without wearing the fabric out as washing it does.
Tips & tricks to avoid SMELL: If your cotton garment smells, try to pour baking soda on the smelly area. Leave it for a while before brushing it off and washing the garment. Note: be careful with dark garments, as the baking soda might leave a light stain!
Pilling: pilling happens when short fibers separates from the yarn. This will decrease over time. Carefully use a new safety razor or a fabric shaver/lint remover to shave the garment when laying on a flat surface. Avoid pulling the fibers with you fingers or a brush, as this may cause damage on the yarn. However, don't shave wool containing mohair, as it will damage the natural fluffiness of the yarn. Avoid friction between a wool garment and e.g. bags, bracelets or watches which may cause pilling.
Storing: store laying. if hanging on a hanger it will loose its shape after a while, simply due to gravity.
Storing over time: g
Tips & tricks to avoid moths: Make sure your woollen garments are clean before packing them away for a longer period. Moths prefer dirty textiles! To be sure, pack the garments in sealed plastic or paper bags. You can also use lavender bags together with your woollen garments to avoid moths.
Tips & tricks to avoid pilling: Wash your wool garment before you start using it. This way the fibres bind better together and you reduce the chance that it will pill.
