Organic Cotton Sweater Care to Last a Lifetime
WASH AND CARE FOR YOUR COTTON
We recommend you to wash by hand in cold water or 30° C maximum, without chlorine. We do not recommend traditional machine wash, do not tumble dry and no professional dry-cleaning.
We recommend that you place them inside a special bag to prevent the cotton from being damaged in the drum of your washing machine. Organic cotton is not exposed to the weakening, harsh chemicals that commercially grown cotton is, therefore powerful detergents, full of abrasive chemicals that are hard on delicate undyed fiber, not to mention the environment and you, is not recommended to wash our garments. Use a soft, natural soap, or - even better - a homemade one, see our recipe here ! Do not use softener.
Never hang up your wet knitted clothes, let them dry flat on a white towel so that they regain their original shape. Iron to a maximum iron sole temperature of 110° C. Do not wash raw organic cotton with others colors. When the knit is wet, do not put it in contact with other colors fabrics.
To store your sweaters and cardigans, it is advisable to fold them so they keep their shape. Knitted garments must not be hung because the piece could lose its shape. Fold them and store them in a space with a moth-repeller.
