CLEANING
Be aware: Wrong cleaning can cause irreversible damage to your suits and shorts. Also, avoid over-cleaning your suits, dry-cleaning your suit too often will wear away the natural fibers and take some years off.
If you have the possibility, ask your mom for advice!
In general: If your suit is clearly duly then take it to the cleaners, otherwise, use a lint roller or spot clean with water and a soft towel on small stains will suffice.
 
PRESSING
Use a steamer instead of an iron. If you want to prolong the life of your suit, get a steamer. Never use a normal dry iron directly on your suit as it will bum the fibers and add a sheen to the material. But, if your steamer isn’t doing the job you need, bring it to the cleaners and ask them to press it.
 
HANGING
Always hang your suits in your closet. To make sure your suit maintains its form, we advise using wood or plastic hangers with rounded edges. These offer a more natural shape that fills out the shoulder nicely, and allows it to sit and drape nicely. When it sits for a day or two, the suit will naturally go back to its original drape.
 
PACKING
The best way to pack your suit is to roll it. Turn the suit inside out, put the shoulders together, and roll it up, be careful to make sure the seams and lapels are lined up as you fold, then do an easy loose roll from the bottom up. Good news for fans of the carry-on.
 
STORING
Use a garment bag. Some of your suits are seasonal. You probably won’t be wearing any of your heavy wool suits in the middle of summer. Before putting any suits away for the season have them dry cleaned before you put them away. If you have an overly dusty wardrobe make sure to store them in a suit bag.
 
SORT AND OPTIMIZE
Different garments have different requirements and your laundry should be sorted accordingly. At least, you need to sort by color but we recommend you also sort them by type (workwear vs more delicate garments) or temperature (warm vs cold). A good tip is to make sure that the garments don’t hurt each other in the machine, empty pockets, close zippers and make sure to not wash colored new garments for the first time together with lighter colours.
 
GO FOR 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.
 
USE GREEN PRODUCTS
Choose an environmentally friendly laundry detergent and don’t use too much of it. Overdosing won’t have any effect on making your clothes cleaner. Softeners are popular and can be anti-static to reduce the collection of lint on dark garments, but be aware that chemical softeners may damage both the garment and environment.
 

USE GREEN PRODUCTS

 
TOOLS
  • A Suit Brush or lint roller if you’re in a pinch
  • Proper hangers; preferably wooden with shaped ends to fill out the shoulders
  • A steamer for quick refreshing and touch-ups
This is your best line of defense in suits that weather the daily grind and the occasional happy hour or formal event.
 
PROPER HANGERS
Before a suit retires to a dark closet it needs to be hung and aired at least a day or two. After wearing your suit, regardless of the venue it is always a good idea to let it air to properly dry out all the fibers and remove any odors that may be lingering. And trust us: It’s best to have a couple of suits on rotation, so you’re not wearing the same one days in a row.
 
HAND STEAMER
Hand Steamer is a great tool for removing those nasty wrinkles anywhere you bend. If you trust yourself with an iron this will certainly do the trick, however extra caution is a must. Keeping a clean non-colored terry or linen towel between the iron and the suit’s fabric is extra insurance against burning. The best practice is to place and lift the iron, allowing the heat and steam to remove the wrinkles, instead of rubbing it up and down the garment. Never place an iron over anything that could possibly leave a stain. The iron will just ensure its permanent placement on your beloved suit.
 

DETAILED WASH INSTRUCTIONS:

 
WOOL POLO | WOOL IN GENERAL
In principle, avoid washing wool as much as possible. Unlike cotton and synthetic fabrics, pure merino wool does not retain odors and will stay fresh without wash. Just air it out occasionally and it will be good as new.
If washing is needed, use detergent for delicates. If you machine wash, use a wool program or hand wash cycle.
Air dry flat on towel. Remove as many folds or creases as possible. If needed carefully stretch it back to its original shape before drying, otherwise wearing will naturally remove creases and stretch the garment back to original dimensions.
If ironing is necessary, turn the sweater inside out and spray the garment with a little water before applying the iron to the garment surface gently. This will make crease removal easier We recommend you to not use fabric softener because they coat the wool fibers and reduce the fibers ability to naturally manage moisture and regulate your body temperature
 
CARE TIPS
Don’t be alarmed if your sweater starts to pill. Pilling is the natural formation of fuzzy balls on the surface of your wool sweater, which can occur in any parts of your wool sweater. It mostly appears on sleeves, armpits and the sides of the garment. It can easily be removed with a wool comb, carefully running down the garment without pressing down to hard. We can’t guarantee that it won’t occur but to reduce the risk of pilling, always turn our sweater inside out when washing and be careful while using it so you don’t rub it on structured surfaces.
Some wool qualities can be sensitive against use of a dust roll which can make the short fibers come up on the surface and make pills on the garment. Use a soft wool brush to remove dust and to place the wool fibres in line again.
Store your sweater folded in your wardrobe, hanging it will cause stretching of fibers which can affect the length of the garment. Make sure that it is stored in a dry and cool place and avoid direct sunlight.
Store your wool garments together with cedar balls or other moth protecting material to prevent it from clothing moths.
Allow 1-2 days between wearing your merino sweater. This allows wrinkles to dissipate and the elasticity of the fibers to recover.
 

WOOL COAT

 
DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS 
Air your garment after each wear in order to avoid the wool retaining any odours. If wrinkles occur on the fabric, we recommend steaming your coat. Steaming is gentler to the fabric fibers and helps the fabric to maintain its natural look. Make sure to hold the steamer 1-2 inches from the surface and in constant motion to get the best result.

 

CARE TIPS 
Keep your wool coat on a hanger in your wardrobe. Preferably on a wide wooden hanger. Avoid wire hangers as they result in stress on the fabric and seams. Avoid squeezing your coat into a tightly packed closet since it may result in creasing which could be difficult to remove with a steamer.
Button the coat all the way up to maintain the shape when storing. Use a garment bag when storing the coat between seasons to avoid moths or other insects infesting the coat. For extra prevention store together with cedar balls that act as insect repellents.
Don’t be alarmed if your coat starts to pill over time. Pilling is the natural formation of fuzzy balls on the surface which can occur in any part of your coat but it mostly appears on sleeves, armpits and the sides of the garment due to friction. It can easily be removed by hand or with a wool brush or garment shaver. We can’t guarantee that it won’t occur but to reduce the risk of pilling, avoid repetitive friction from for example carrying your bag on the same shoulder.
Use a wool brush to clean your coat from any lint or dirt and to place the wool fibres in line again. Some wool qualities can be sensitive against use of dust roll which can make the short fibres come up on the surface and make pills on the garment.
