Proper care for cotton, wool, down & silk
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.
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.
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.
Wool is self-cleansing, and you can therefore limit the washing of your woolen products to when it is visibly dirty.
Wear something underneath your woolen favorite to avoid body moisture and smells from getting into the product.
Wool is a protein and can therefore not be washed with ordinary detergent, as this can ruin the fibers. Always use detergent appropriate for wool and silk.
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.
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.
Like wool, silk is a protein and can therefore not be washed with ordinary detergent, as this can ruin the fibers. 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, or preferably by hand.
Do not soak silk, as this might leave stains on your delicate product.
Down jackets and similar can often do with a wet cloth swipe instead of washing.
Down-filled jackets and similar should always be washed on gentle cycle with detergent appropriate for down-filled products.
It is super important that down is thoroughly dried after washing, to avoid the down from developing a bad smell.
Keep the padded look of your down-filled jacket by tumble drying it with drying balls. Alternatively, you can use tennis balls.
