How to care for your extrafine merino/silk
Merino and silk are natural fibres. We recommend doing a cool hand wash or specialist dry clean.
- Hand wash cold with a mild detergent
- Do not machine Wash
- Do not soak
- Re-shape whilst damp
- Dry flat
- Cool iron on the reverse
- Do not tumble dry
- Or specialist dry cleaning
Washing by hand is highly recommended for your Merino and Silk blend. Turn your garments inside-out, hand wash using cool water. Avoid soaking for too long, a few minutes to help loosen the dirt before gently squeezing and rinsing, first with cool water.
Pre-dry your Extrafine Merino by gently rolling it in a towel – never wring. Reshape the garment while damp, (especially the neck line) and dry flat not on direct heat.
Occasionally it may be good to iron your Extrafine Merino to keep the fibres in good condition. Bizarrely low heat ironing makes the Extrafine Merino super soft by helping the fibres smooth down and go back to the soft state they were when you first bought it! Iron lightly when the jumper is still damp, with a finishing cloth in between and hold the iron on a low setting possible & ideally without steam so you do not ruin the fibres. If dry ironing, use a slightly damp cloth in between to avoid glazing. Obviously, avoid the rib stripe.
