COTTON

  • May be prone to shrinking when washed and dried. To stop this happening wash in cold (30 degree or below) water
  • Give garments a gentle stretch when they come out of the wash to get them back into shape
  • Always air dry, dry clothes flat and out of the sun if possible.
  • Best to iron cotton items with the steam setting on your iron.

LINEN

  • Wash linen on low temperatures in lukewarm or cold water
  • Use the gentle machine cycle and a mild detergent to protect the fibres
  • Do not dry clean linen as it can weaken the fibres
  • Air dry or tumble dry on a delicate setting and remove from dryer immediately to avoid ironing and preserve soft handfeel
  • Linen becomes softer and more absorbent after each wash

SILK

  • Silk is a delicate natural fibre and should be treated delicately
  • Silk is best washed by hand in cool water
  • Rinse well, squeeze out extra moisture by rolling in a towel and hang to dry
  • Do not tumble dry as heat can cause the silk to shrink and dull the fabric
  • Silk is a protein that’s a lot like hair, so treat it with mild and delicate detergent

KNITWEAR

  • Garments should be warm hand washed inside out in mild detergent
  • Do not bleach, soak, rub or twist
  • Reshape garment while wet and dry flat in shade
  • Do not tumble dry
  • Cool iron with a press cloth if necessary
  • Drycleanable
  • Prolong the life of your knitwear by storing folded – this will also maintain shape
  • Slight pilling and/or shedding are inherent quality of even the highest quality yarns. This should not be considered a flaw and can easily be managed by using a wool comb or an electric fabric shaver.

VISCOSE

  • Hand wash in cool water
  • Viscose can lose its shape when wet so drying is best by hanging up the garment straight after wash
  • Do not tumble dry, it will cause shrinkage
  • You may notice your Viscose garments appear to ‘shrink’ and ‘stiffen’ after laundering. To resume to the original size and shape and feel, give your garments a warm steamy press.

POLYESTER

  • Gentle machine or handwash in warm water and use fabric softener to reduce static electricity
  • Turn garments inside out before washing to prevent snags and use a microfiber bag to prevent fibres from entering the waste water
  • Cool iron on a moderate setting
  • Can be safely dry-cleaned
