  • The process of making recycled fabrics requires firstly for the material to be sorted into clothing that can be reused and clothing that is too damaged to be reused and is therefore recycled. Clothing is then sorted based on fiber contents and color. It is a labor-intensive process, which is why only less than 1% of clothing ends up being recycled into new material.
  • Making recycled fabric uses less energy, dye, and water than virgin materials.
  • It also reduces the amount of fabric going into landfill and keeps materials in circulation for longer.
  • Recycled cotton is made from pre-consumer textiles such as cotton scraps, factory offcuts, or deadstock from virgin cotton fabric production. Recycled cotton is often paired with virgin cotton to improve the quality of the finished fabric, as recycled cotton often has lesser yarn strength.
  • Recycled wool yarns are shorter and easily break during production. We combine recycled wool with other fibers, like polyamide to make the fabric more durable and reduce waste in production.
  • Wool is the most recycled fiber and was the first fiber to be recycled: the recycling of wool has been done since the 19th century.
  • Wool has the potential to last at least 30 years and be recycled two or more times.
  • Recycling wool results in reduced methane emissions from sheep, reduced land use and water pollution from washing wool.
  • The wool we use is recycled in a closed loop system, meaning fibers are turned into yarn to create new products of similar quality and use to the original.
  • Recycled wool saves 11kg of CO2 and 500l of water per kilo compared to virgin wool.
  • Recycled polyamide has all the good qualities of virgin polyamide with a reduced environmental impact.

Care

We recommend a cold wash on a gentle cycle using natural detergent and hang drying for all our products. A colder wash saves electricity, the gentle cycle wears the fabric down less, natural detergent (especially with neutral PH) can retain the colour and elastane for longer and hang drying is easier on the clothing and the environment. Hand washing is always a good option too. If you are not separating delicates, use a laundry bag to protect the fabric from getting damaged. Look for a dense fabric for the laundry bag.

To reduce washes, we recommend airing or freezing your garments and spot cleaning whenever you have a stain. Airing helps in getting rid of the odour and you can do this by leaving your clothing outside overnight. Freezing gets rid of smell, mildew, and moths and is effective when done for 6-12 hours. This helps keep your clothes in better condition for longer and ensures the colours don’t fade.

Washing synthetic fibres releases microplastics into the water system, especially during the first washes, but washing the synthetic blend fabrics in a laundry bag that captures the microfibres allows you to dispose of the microfibres properly. You can also use a laundry ball or a washing machine filter. 

The clothes can shrink about 5-7% in the wash.

Knits should be stored folded, as hanging knitwear can change the shape. Put cedar wood or lavender in your drawers and make sure your knitwear is clean when you store it to avoid moths.

 

Dye care and evenness

Naturally dyed garments are sensitive to sun exposure. To ensure colorfastness, do not dry or store in direct contact with the sun.

Natural materials fade more than synthetics because the dye is added on during the dyeing process, whereas for synthetics the dye is bonded with the fiber during the fiber-making stage. Durable fabrics like jerseys retain color better than delicate materials like linen and silk. Friction, heat and sun exposure are the main reasons colors fade. It is especially important to be careful when washing black and dark-colored clothing.

To retain color, here is our guidance:

  • Wash similar colors together, regardless of how many times they have been washed
  • Wash clothes in cold water, as heat opens the bond between the dye and fiber
  • Wash clothes inside out to avoid friction
  • Do not stuff the laundry too full of clothes, as it will cause friction and clothes may not be cleaned and rinsed properly
  • Use a short wash and gentle cycle to reduce friction
  • Liquid detergent is more favorable, as it ensures there is no residue on the clothes

Even if you follow all the instructions, dyes will fade in the wash.
