Caring for your Products

We have made our products so that they are worry-less and easy to care for. Nonetheless, here’s some advice on how to care for your products so that they can last you a long time.

Washing and drying. Our products can be safely machine washed and dried multiple times, without the risk of shrinkage or discoloring.

Ideally, to ensure a longer life for your garments, you should wash them with cold water, but you can also use the regular wash cycle. To tumble dry your garments, we recommend using a low heat setting. If possible, we recommend that you wash your items inside out to protect their outer surface and ensure that they can maintain their look for longer.

Our products are manufactured so that they do not discolor, but we recommend that you wash your items with like colors when possible. 

It’s better that you avoid heavy duty detergents or any detergents containing bleaches. Never use bleach of any kind.

If you use a softener, try to keep the amount to a minimum. Too much softener can lead to your items pilling because softeners act as lubricants and might enable fibers to move more easily.

We recommend you tumble dry your items on a low heat setting but can also lay your items flat to dry if you prefer to do so. Make sure you place the items on a completely flat surface and that you remove any wrinkles as soon as possible. Avoid hanging them to dry, as this could cause that they stretch and lose their shape.

Ironing. Generally, our products don’t need ironing and we recommend that you do not iron them; however, you may iron your items if you wish to do so. We recommend using the iron on the medium-hot setting and spraying the item with a little water before ironing or using the steaming function. Don’t apply excess pressure while ironing as this might make the item’s surface shiny.

Storing your items. To store your items, we recommend folding them flat instead of hanging them. Hanging your items might lead to them stretching or deforming. If you must hang your items, look for broad, padded hangers. Before you store your items, make sure that they’re completely dry and have no damp patches.

Pilling. Pilling is the formation of fuzzy balls on the surface of an item and is generally caused by rubbing during wear. Pilling tends to happen to all clothing after much use. Nobody can guarantee that it won’t occur but it can be minimized by washing items inside out and using very little softener. If pilling does occur, you can carefully remove the pills by hand, with a comb, or a de-piller or fabric shaver.

Repairing holes. If you happen to get a hole on any of your items, make sure to repair it immediately, as holes grow rapidly in knitwear. You may need a hooked needle or “knit-picker” with an eye that is used to draw the yarn from the outside to the inside where it is sewn in. You could also take the item to a dry cleaner or tailor.

Removing stains. Stains should be treated immediately – the longer a stain stays on a garment, the harder it will be to get out. Never use any type of heat on an item with a stain, as this will make it harder to remove. Apply solvent-based stain removers by dabbing or blotting the stain. Never rub the stain as this could discolor your item. Make sure you test the stain remover on an inconspicuous part of the garment to make sure it doesn’t damage your item. If you see any discoloration, use a different stain remover. Apply the stain remover in small amounts, and work from the edges of the stain inward to avoid spreading the stain. You might have to apply the stain remover more than once for the stain to come out completely. After applying the stain remover, rinse the stained area with cold water.
