Washing can cause fabric to shrink. We recommend to reshape while damp and hang out dry or steam iron at low temperature. Hang your sweater up to ventilate between wears, remove wrinkles and reduce the need for ironing.
Washing your clothes after each use is often more about habit than hygiene, and quite frankly mostly it isn’t necessary. In fact, washing less slow down the fading of color and ageing of your garment in general. Many garments just need to be aired and shaken out properly to be good for another wear.
Follow the care label symbols and instructions carefully, they’ve been designed to keep your clothes in great shape while not pressuring the environment too heavily.
Use lower temperatures
Thanks to modern day washing machines and detergents you no longer need to boil your laundry. A lower temperature still gets the job done, while putting less stress on your clothing and the environment. We’re not saying everything should be washed at 30C (cold), leave your underwear and bedsheets for instance, but most of it.
Fold your Sweater
Fabrics that easily stretch should not be hanging but rather be folded and stacked in your wardrobe, but avoid over stacking as the garments will wrinkle. This goes for t-shirts, sweatshirts and especially knitted sweaters. And if you do catch one hanging - never pull the hanger through the neckline - remove it from inside the garment.
