Your MS garments deserve to be loved, here is a guide on how to take care of your favourite pieces.
If it isn't dirty, don't wash it! Instead, try hanging it up outside to air it out, or in a steamy bathroom to let it breath.
Chris Morton, head seamstress at Clothes Doctor states washing garments too often can damage the fibres and decrease a garments lifespan.
Wash at low temperatures!
If you need to wash your garments, wash them at low temperatures, along with a gentle and natural laundry detergent to keep the fabric clean and soft, as well as prevent colour fading.
Pay attention to care labels!
All of our garments have care labels sewn into the inside seam.
Each fabric requires a different kind of care, how you wash or look after your garment should align with what that fabric needs to obtain its quality.
How to wash wool this Winter
Step one: turn your wool garment inside out, wash on delicate cycle with an approved wool detergent. You can hand wash for no longer than 10 minutes and make sure you use plenty of water (do not soak). Felting occurs when you use too much soap and very little water.
Step two: To avoid shrinking, never put wool in the dryer.
Instead, lay flat to dry on a towel in a spot that doesn't receive any direct sunlight. Carefully adjust the shape of the garment to ensure it is evenly stretched as it dries.
