Aftercare For Cotton

Crisp. Soft. Breathable. 

We Love Organic Cotton.

From crisp poplin to soft jersey, cotton is a natural fibre that comes from the boll of a cotton plant. Whatever form it takes, cotton is always breathable and regulates heat to help you maintain a comfortable temperature.

Care For Your Cotton. 

  • Cotton can be machine or handwashed. To prevent garments from shrinking and to keep them looking their best, wash at 30°.
  • Place delicate items in a mesh bag to help prevent snagging or twisting during machine cycles.
  •  Pre ‑treat stains before washing by dabbing a small amount of stain remover on the area. For darker pieces, patch test on an inside seam to check the colour won’t be affected.
  • Hang cotton out to dry, as heat from tumble dryers can cause it to shrink. This also saves energy. If you do have to use dryers, products such as eco-eggs can help to reduce the impact.
