Washing Instructions

PLANT-DYED:

 Quick washing instruction:

    • Only wash when dirty. 
    • Wash by hand in lukewarm water, if necessary use a mild eco soap 
    • Dry in shade only, best lay flat to dry.
    • Iron linen hot, wool is best pressed with a towel between the iron and the fabric. To iron silk use the lowest temperature on your iron.
    • Please do not wash in the machine, high temperatures or dry clean, as it may damage the delicate fabrics and dyes.
      Tumble dry makes the fabric very soft.
    •  Use only mild PH neutral soap detergent with no optical brighteners or enzymes

 

 

Plant dyed products are totally ecological and without the use of harmful chemicals. It is very important to treat your plant dyed products with care as they with the wrong treatment may loose the colour.
Keep in mind, that natural colours may fade a bit over time, and this is no failure but totally normal. It is totally normal that the fabric may loose a bit pigments when washing, plant-dyes are living colours and live their own lives, the fabric needs, therefore, to be treated with care. It is always possible to overdye it with natural colouring again.

 

* Use only mild PH neutral soap detergent with no optical brighteners or enzymes. Plant colours react to increasing acidity or alkalinity and may loose or change their colour, that´s why the PH neutrality of washing detergents is important

F.ex. drips of citrus fruits, lemons or vinegar may give stains or spots as an example.
Have a look at the PH scale on the bottom of this page.

 

* Always hang your product to dry outside of sun. It may fade.

* Recommended to wash with ecological mild soap bar/washing-powder at 20degrees.

 

Handwash in cold water.  Use a detergent you would use for Wool or Silk.



Here you can buy our handmade, all-natural Wool-Soap bars which we recommend for washing your woollen items with. 

 

 

STONEWASHED LINEN in general ("Signature Collection"):

hand wash

* unthread your sling.
* fill a basin with cold water up to 30degrees (if you feel it is needed, add little ecological liquid detergent. you want something free of optical brighteners and enzymes.)
* gently swish your sling around for 1 minute. it may lose some dye, that is ok and will probably continue to loose for a few washes.
* remove the sling from the water and gently squeeze or roll into a towel to remove excess water. 


* hang the sling to dry, inside and out of direct sunlight, or 
pop it in the dryer on the low setting (cover the rings with a sock).
* press the sling with lots of steam on your iron's hottest setting to get it nice, soft and floppy.

 

machine wash

* unthread your sling.
* wash it in your machine (alone, cold water up to 30degrees, gentle cycle) with a little ecological liquid detergent. You want something free of optical brighteners and enzymes.

* hang the sling to dry, inside and out of direct sunlight, or pop it in in the dryer on the low setting (cover the rings with a sock).
* press the sling with lots of steam on your iron's hottest setting to get it nice, soft and floppy.

 

 

At least, keep in mind that all of our slings are lovingly crafted from all-natural textiles, so just like a pair of black jeans or a coloured t-shirt, each time you wash your sling, it may lose a bit of colour.
