HOW TO GIVE KNITTED GARMENTS THE BEST CARE


DON’T WASH WOOL AIR IT OUT


THE UNIQUE PROPERTIES OF WOOL

Wool has some very unique properties that provide amazing comfort – all year round. And with the right care, a wool sweater keeps looking nice year after year. It is rarely necessary to wash wool. Hang it outside to be aired out - preferably as humidly as possible. This cleans the wool and it regains its shape. It is also a good idea to use your steam iron to steam your wool garment. This will also help your garment to regain its shape.


THE SECRET BEHIND SAFE MACHINE WASHING OF WOOL DOS AND DON’TS

Sometimes, it can be necessary to wash wool clothes. Almost all our C.C.FIFTYFIVE (CC55) wool products are machine washable. In the C.C.FIFTY-FIVE (CC55) collection, you will find selected products labelled Total Easy Care. This means that you can safely tumble dry the wool product at low temperature/max 60oC (only tumble dry if you can choose this setting). The lifespan of your knitwear will inevitably be slightly reduced – but in return, it makes life a little easier.


; Turn your garment inside out ; Use the machine’s wool programme at 40oC ; Use a detergent for wool ; Let your wool knitwear dry flat (you can put it on a hanger when it is almost dry)

: Do not soak the clothes : Never put wool directly on a radiator or in strong sunlight : Never dry wool in the tumble dryer, unless it is labelled Total Easy Care


HOW YOUR KNITWEAR LASTS LONGER

When working with natural materials such as wool, the knitwear will somethimes fuzz (or pill in technical terminology) - especially if exposed to friction. But you can do something to avoid this!


BE PREVENTATIVE, MAKING 2+2 = 5

It is good for wool to rest 24 hours after use, so the wool fibres have time to regain their natural elasticity and shape. Therefore, if you wear a knitted sweater every day, you need two to alternate between. This way, two and two equals five... Or in practice; 1+1 sweater = the durability of 3 sweaters.

WHEN THE DAMAGE IS DONE

BEFORE

Has your knitted sweater already become fuzzy? Don’t worry – you can still save it. You can easily remove pilling with a textile shaver! And luckily, pilling is reduced over time, as the loose wool fibres work their way out of the fabric.

AFTER


COTTON GARMENTS ARE EASY TO WASH

CARING FOR COTTON Cotton uniforms are comfortable, durable, easy to wash and have great absorptive power. Cotton clothes should be washed according to the care label and preferably with a detergent suitable for the product’s colour. It would be a good idea to skip a wash once in a while and simply hang your cotton sweater outside overnight or during a humid day. This will remove any smells and freshen up your sweater.


PRESSING KEEPS YOUR KNITWEAR SHARP

PRESSING It is good for most knitted sweaters to be pressed from time to time. If you are using an iron without steam, put a damp cloth over the clothes. Otherwise, iron with steam and put a dry cloth over the clothes to avoid shiny ironing marks. Remember that wool can benefit from simply being steamed - you can also use your steam iron for this purpose.
