TLC Tips for Our Customers
Made to Last a Lifetime
Our goal is to create gorgeous, DURABLE garments. Anna, our founder, is famous for saying she's not a fan of making clothes that are too precious. Kids should feel free to skate in their skating pond skirts or sled in their popcorn sweaters while wearing a sledding scarf, mittens, and hat. That's the point! We don't think "wearing" clothes and "treasuring" them have to be mutually exclusive terms.
That said, we can only do so much, right? How customers care for our clothes will absolutely affect their longevity. So, yes: we've done our best to make stuff that will last a lifetime. All we ask is that you give each piece a little TLC along the way. To that end, you can find instructions below for washing and storing our garments.
How to Wash Our Garments
For a product to truly be "sustainable," it should be made to last. With a little TLC from you, our garments can truly last a lifetime—and beyond.
As a rule of thumb, hand washing our garments in lukewarm water will lengthen their life. But we're realists and understand that handwashing isn't always convenient. Good news: Many of our garments are machine-washable depending on the fibers.
Below, we provide hand washing, machine washing, and drying instructions. As always, if you have questions, just ask!
Did you know that wool is naturally antibacterial? It's true. And one of the many benefits is that you don't need to wash it as often. (Yes, we heard that happy sigh!) Even better: Our merino wool is machine washable. It won't shrink or felt, either. (Another happy sigh. We get it.)
Note: There IS one exception. Some of our garments contain high saturated and high contrast colors (for example, bright red with white). Because of this, color bleeding is unavoidable. We recommend spot cleaning or dry cleaning for these garments. We've noted these items on their product pages. But if you're not sure, contact us. We're always happy to help.

How to machine wash our merino wool garments:
Pima cotton is machine washable. Please check labels carefully for detailed washing and drying instructions. And you can also follow the instructions above for hand washing and machine washing.
For some pima garments, we've used natural plant-based dyes. They are earth-friendly, but we've found that they can be delicate and less color fast. So some fading may occur in prolonged sunlight or from over washing. Again, always read the label.
How to Store Our Garments
In addition to proper laundering, proper storage can also extend the life of our garments.
