Care Guide Test

MERINO WOOL

Where possible spot clean, otherwise cool hand wash with an approved wool detergent & dry flat. Ideally air out regularly, taking advantage of the wools ‘self cleaning’ properties. Make sure to store your knitwear folded to keep its shape.


From time to time you may find your knitwear may pill a little. This is common shedding that occurs in finer wools including cashmere & merino that possess a softer handle. Although V&W knitwear pilling levels are very low, you can easily remove pilling one at a time gently by hand or simply use a de-pilling comb.

CUPRO

Cupro washes and wears beautifully, however tumble drying should be avoided as it can potentially break down the yarn and produce a faded colour.


The best way to maintain it's silky appearance and integregitry is by cold hand washing seperatly and drying flat in the shade.

SILK

Silk is maintaned best when dry cleaned with care. Ironing on a high heat can cause the fabric to burn and weaken the delicate nature of the yarn. To remove wrinkles and creases, turn your silk inside out and place a cloth between a cool iron and the silk garment.


We suggest avoiding spot cleaning your silk pieces as this can stain and leave a water mark.

COTTON

Always wash in cold water, warm to hot water can cause the garment to shrink.


Shake out when wet will help with ironing and returning your garment to it’s original shape. Line dry or lay flat.


Cotton is easiest to iron when it is slightly damp.



LEATHER

Leather is best cared for by delicately spot cleaning with mild soap and a damp cloth, this will ensure longevity and maintain the integrity of the garment.


Excessive use of cleaning products can cause the fibres to breakdown prematurely.

LINEN

Linen is a delicate fibre that maintains its structure best by cold hand wash or if a machine must be used, we recommend using a garment bag to avoid the weave catching on a sharp object.


Applying too much heat can cause the fibres to breakdown imapcting the integrity of the weave. To remove creases, we suggest placing a cloth inbetween the iron and garment. Linen is easiest to iron when it is slightly damp.

VISCOSE

Viscose is maintaned best by gently cold hand washing seperatly. Ironing can cause the fabric to burn and weaken the delicate nature of the yarn. We do not suggest spot cleaning your Viscose pieces as this can leave a water mark.

DENIM

Washing too often can naturally make colour fade quickly. Always wash denim in cold water for better colour fastness. Line dry away from sunlight.


Line drying can at times make denim feel stiff, a few minutes in dryer on low temperature will soften denim, alternatively, it will naturally soften with wear.


Avoid bleach or detergents that may have a bleach content, this will not only effect colour but break down the fabric. Denim can be dry cleaned but it is not necessary.

BAMBOO

Bamboo maintains its special qualities when washed in cold to warm water (up to 60° C) with a gentle detergent, free of bleach. Bamboo is easiest to iron when slightly damp, just as linen or heavy cotton.

WOOL COATING

Dry cleaning is recommended. However simple spot cleaning and airing out regularly will keep your coating beautiful as “self-cleaning & breathability” is naturally occurring a property of wool.



CASHMERE

Where possible spot clean, otherwise cool hand wash with an approved wool detergent & dry flat. Ideally air out regularly, taking advantage of the wools ‘self cleaning’ properties. Make sure to store your knitwear folded to keep its shape.


From time to time you may find your knitwear may pill a little. This is common shedding that occurs in finer wools including cashmere & merino that possess a softer handle.
