Fabric Care

We believe that caring for your garments well can help extend the wearable life of them. Here we give some detail on each of our fabrics including technical information and laundering guidelines and recommendations. Each garment comes with a sewn in care label for you to follow too.

 

Cotton Elastane

Our cotton elastane fabric is a heavy weight t-shirting fabric. The elastane gives the fabric a slight stretch and helps it keep its shape, even after many wears and washes (check out my 30 wears challenge to see how it wears).
This fabric will shrink slightly in the length after washing (allow 5% shrinkage) but will not shrink in the width. Being a predominantly natural fabric you can expect some colour fade through wear, washing and exposure to sunlight.
This fabric is used for all of our t-shirts and t-shirt dresses.

Linen

Our linen fabric is a beautiful, mid weight linen and has the most lush colouring.
All of our linen styles are pre washed in a hot wash to remove any shrinkage and finishing starch from the fabric, though we recommend cold washing for general laundering. Being a predominantly natural fabric you can expect some colour fade through wear, washing and exposure to sunlight.
To extend the life, and particularly the colour of your linen garment you might consider hand washing the piece in cold water, however machine washing is fine (and how I wash my linen) but do expect a bit more fading if you do.

This fabric is used for our linen dresses, skirts, pants, and jumpsuit (unless otherwise specified).

Merino

Our merino fabric is a medium weight (255gsm) sweat shirting fabric. 
I've sampled a lot of merino fabrics and this by far is the best quality I have found. It wears incredibly well, does not pill, has minimal shrinkage (allow up to 5% shrinkage in length), washes well, and feels so soft against the skin. It is only available in black (otherwise I'd be ordering it in every colour). I'm currently wearing my merino dress for its third winter and it still looks as good as new.
This fabric is used for our merino long sleeves and merino dress styles. Note that my new merino is the same knit and style, it now is slightly heavier weight and has a small elastane component.

The care instructions below are what I use, I put my merino in the wash with the rest of my clothes. If you like you can use wool wash on the merino to provide a bit more care.
