We take great care to use quality fabrics for all our ranges. Garments and fabrics are tested under carefully monitored conditions in accordance with internationally recognise standards. Wash tests are undertaken to check the serviceability and longevity of garments.
Garments should be hung with space around them so they do not get creased or squashed. To keep garments in shape we advise to use a hangar suitable for that particular garment.
If a stain occurs please tackle it before it dries. Ideally remove any excess stain, but do not attempt to remove the stain unless you are competent to do so. Depending on the type of stain, some stain removers may be effective, but please test on a small inconspicuous area first. Dry cleaners are experts at stain removal, but it would help them to know what the stain is in order to attempt the best remedy.
Always refer to the care label before proceeding, and ensure the care label instructions are adhered to. Only wash garments that have care labels which show they can be hand or machine washed. If hand or machine washing we advise to use colour friendly detergents to maximise the colour life of your garment. Always wash dark colours seperately. Please note that the use of fabric softeners and conditioners may prove detrimental to the performance of some garments, particularly polyester crepe de chine.
Most of our polywool garments are TEFLON protected. Teflon provides maximum water and stain repellency without affecting the breathability of the fabric. The TEFLON protection repels most spills, with liquids forming into 'beads' rather than soaking through. Most spills can be removed by immediate dabbing with a cloth. Given these garments require less dry cleaning, their life span will be longer.
Our highest wool content structured garments are blended with Lycra. This provides comfort, stretch and yields excellent shape retention.
