Wool is a soft, natural fiber that can be prone to shrinking if not cared for properly. To maintain the super-soft feel and luxurious feel of your wool garment, we recommend following the instructions on each garment’s care label. If your wool item is structured, such as a blazer, suit, or coat, then we recommend to spot clean. When washing, use a gentle detergent that is specially designed for wool, turn inside out and always use a delicate cycle on the machine that has a temperature of 30°C or less. To prevent shrinkage, it is advised to soak your garment in cold water before placing it in the machine. Never tumble dry wool, instead dry flat away from direct heat or sunlight. To ensure a silky, smooth appearance to your wool garment, iron inside-out on a low temperature setting, ideally when it is still damp.
Ensure your cashmere stays in its most beautiful condition by cleaning and storing it properly. Cashmere can be hand washed, professionally dry cleaned or put in the washing machine on a delicate wool cycle at a temperature no higher than 30°C. Turn your cashmere garment inside out before washing, and only use a mild detergent or baby shampoo. Dry cleaning should only be done seasonally, to avoid damaging the fibers. Lay it flat on a towel to dry, and avoid wringing or twisting it to remove excess water. Simply squeeze it gently to keep it from losing its shape. We advise folding and keeping in a drawer when not in use, or placing in a zip-lock bag with cedar wool balls for long-term storage to prevent damage occurring from mildew or clothes moths. It is worth noting that even high-quality cashmere can pill, and this can be removed by laying your garment flat and gently combing with a cashmere comb.
Cotton is one of the most popular fabrics, and there are many different types of cotton fabric. We suggest checking the care instructions for the specific item before washing. Generally, cotton should be hand or machine washed at 30°C or below. This will help avoid color fading and dye transfer. Allow to air dry naturally, and give garments a gentle stretch to restore shapes as soon as they come out of the wash.
