Care Instructions for cloth
Tumble Dry Cycle:
Pants: 800 U/min
Shirts: 600 U/min
Knee pads: 600 U/min
We recommend no use of softener. As an ecologic alternative add white vinegar (1-2 TS) to the rinsing process of your machine wash. That neutralizes final soap, water and laundry get softer. The fabric keeps its resistence, natural antimicrobial character and resistence to dirt.
Hemp is surprisingly resistant to stains. We had a good experience with 40° machine washing (working dirt, grassy plot). Before laundry, local stains can be treated with mild detergent, soaked and mechanically rubbed. There`s no need to use chlorine or oxygen bleach. All fabrics are color fade resistant, skin and environmental friendly dyed.
All fabrics and garments are natural products. Our products are manufactured in a natural way and treated with lots of care until you hold a piece of enywear in your hands. Too hot temperatures in combination with high mechanical force will soften the fibers, and breaks/ the strength and resistance of natural hemp and organic cotton.
We recommend low temperatures for tumbling dry. It also reduces the risk of shrinkage.
Air drying is best in shadow to prevent direct UV sunlight to bleach colors. Or turn it inside out to keep outside colors.
It also helps to pull your cloth into shape when its still dry, safes ironing.
The dying process is certified under “ecocert”. All fiber dyed with skin-friendly and environmentally safe colors. All pieces are color-proof with recommended treatment (40° laundry, no bleach, tumble dry at low heat, iron at low heat, no dry-clean). With time and use, natural fabrics will get their individual look. This is the nature of natural fibers. After a while, they will get a more used look and will appear the way loved cloth should look like.
Hemp and cotton can take some heat for a short time, including steam. It’s easier to iron damp cloth. No iron is needed if you pull damp cloth into form and let it dry.
- Our overall recommendation is to wash less. It saves water, energy, and your workwear will also live longer.
