GARMENT CARE


We love sourcing the best fibres for our garments. There is nothing better than using the most textural yarns, softest wools and crispest cottons.

The care instructions on our garments’ labels will give you advice on how to best care for your garment. However, we have put together a guide with additional instructions so the garments remain long loved by you for years to come.

 

Cotton

We use cotton in countless ways to create cleaner crispier finishes. Easy to care for, cotton is machine washable (at 60 degrees) and if worn and treated with care, will last for a long time. When drying, we suggest drying them flat whilst gently reshaping them (knits can be heavy when wet and that extra weight will pull them out of shape if you dry them over a rail or hanging up). Remember, no knitted things will enjoy a trip round the tumble dryer, so always air dry if possible. Fastness of colour is not sufficient for over dying and bleaching.

You can iron these on medium heat, we always suggest lightly steaming your garments as it helps remove any wrinkles and retain shape better.

 

Wool

We use a wide variety of wool to make our garments, from soft merino and lambs wool to fuzzy mohair. Wools don’t need washing as often as other fibres might, they will last a lot longer between washes if you spot clean them where needed and simply air them out.

When you do wash them, remember that wool fibres can be prone to pilling and felting, so we suggest that you avoid high temperatures and friction. Some of our garments are felted lightly to make them softer. While some woollen garments are machine washable on ‘Wool’ program, we strongly suggest hand washing them using mild detergents. You can additionally get them dry-cleaned.

When drying, we suggest that you lay your woollens flat on a towel to absorb any extra moisture, whilst gently reshaping them (knits can be heavy when wet and that extra weight will pull them out of shape if you dry them over a rail or hanging up). Remember, no knitted things will enjoy a trip round the tumble dryer, so always air dry if possible.

While producing woollen garments, we iron them using a steaming iron which helps remove all wrinkles. You can iron them using a low setting.

 

Hand-knits

We suggest hand washing all hand knitted garments, as most of these are heavy. You can follow the same guide as Woollen garments.

 

While we try our very best to deliver you the best product, knitwear is prone to little pulls in thread (We have this all the time whilst knitting with our jumpers on – lucky for us we are surrounded by knitting tools). If your garment needs any mending, we would be more than happy to have a look to see if we can fix it for you .You can get in touch with us with photographs, so we can advise you further.
