How to take properly care of cotton, wool, down & silk.
Don't wash too often
Cotton, except denim, can be a fragile material which is more likely to wear and tear when being used. Therefore, wash as rarely as possible.
keep it cold - aviod the tumbler
Cotton can shrink both when being wash and when tumble-dried.
We therefore recommend that you always wash your cotton at low degrees and hang it up to dry in a shady spot outside.
Keep the shape
To avoid your cotton items from going out of shape, we recommend you keep it folded or on a wide hanger of high quality. The ideal storage depends on the weight and quality of your cotton item. For example, a sweatshirt can easily be kept on a hanger, while a loose woven tee is better off being folded.
Don't wash - except if absolutely necessary
Wool is self-cleansing, and you can therefore limit the washing of your woolen products to when it is visibly dirty. But remember to wear something underneath your woolen favorite to avoid body moisture and smells from getting into the product.
wool outerwear and wool blazers need dry cleaning
As a normal consumer it is hard to care properly for your wool outerwear when washing.
We recommend always to take your treasured pieces to a dry cleaner, who can cleanse the product thoroughly.
Flat dry your wool
When wool get wet the fibers will weaken and will be in risk of breaking.
Therefore, always dry your woolen product lying down flat with a towel over it.
Down jackets and similar can often do with a wet cloth swipe instead of washing.
wash on gentle cycle
Down-filled jackets and similar should always be washed on gentle cycle with detergent appropriate for down-filled products.
Down-filled products needs a thorough tumble-drying
It is super important that down is thoroughly dried after washing, to avoid the down from developing a bad smell.
Keep the shape with drying balls
Keep the padded look of your down-filled jacket by tumble drying it with drying balls. Alternatively, you can use tennis balls.
wash with detergents for wool and silk
Like wool, silk is a protein and can therefore not be washed with ordinary detergent, as this can ruin the fibers. Therefore, always use detergent appropriate for wool and silk.
Silk is a fragile material, and you should always wash it on a gentle cycle at low degrees.
don't soak silk
Do not soak silk, as this might leave stains on your delicate product.
