Linen/Cotton Care Instructions.
Linen/Cotton is a soft yet durable fabric created from the fibres of the flax & cotton plant and gets softer with every wash. It’s hypoallergenic, moisture wicking and adjusts to your body temperature to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter which makes it a great choice for any time of the year.
Here are some TLC tips to help your Lullaby Club Linen last many years to come.
Linen, much like cotton, does have a tendency to shrink. For that reason, avoid washing linen clothes in hot water and opt for either warm or cold water; if your linen is a vibrant or dark colour, stick with cold to avoid fading.
• Linen is best washed with a mild detergent
• Hand wash only - no machine washing. (please see instructional video below)
• Avoid the use of fabric softener, and never use bleach on linen clothing, even if it's white.
• Avoid wringing the fabric. Because of the way linen fibres are structured, over-handling can cause damage.
• When air drying, either lay the garment flat on a towel or use a drying rack in the shade; avoid hangers, which will leave unsightly dent marks unless they're padded.
• Dark colours will fade when dried in the sun— please avoid drying your linen in the sun if you want to keep your colours fresh.
• If you feel as though your linen has shrunk steam or iron your garment. Start from the mid section and gently pull down, this will help relax the fabric back to its original size.
Caring for your Knitwear
• Hand-wash garments made from loose yarns to help maintain their quality and longjevity. Please follow the instructional video above for handwashing your garment.
• Do not wash your jumper every time you wear it; spot cleaning is all that's necessary.
• If you stain your knit, don't worry! The easiest way to deal with it is to blot the stain out gently and as quickly as possible with a cloth, using gentle pressure and dabbing.
• When you're not wearing your sweater, fold it neatly and store in a dry place.
• Be careful not to snag the yarn with jewellery or sharp-edged items.
Pilling - Learn how to fix it!
Pilling is the formation of fuzz balls on the surface of clothes that are caused by friction or by natural wear over time.
The fabric is more likely to pill if the wearer is more active or if it constantly rubs against other fabrics or surfaces.
If the fuzziness is bothersome, you can gently remove it by hand or using a de-piller, which will help to shave the fuzziness from the surface of the knit.
