How do I care for my swimwear?
Rinse immediately after use. Do not leave rolled up wet. Cold hand wash separately in mild soap. Dry flat in shade. Do not use harsh detergents. Do not use fabric softeners. Do not soak, bleach, tumble dry, dry clean or iron. Avoid contact with chlorine, suntan lotions and oils as they can cause damage or mark garments – rinse immediately if your items come into contact. Avoid contact with rough surfaces to prevent pulls in fabric.
How do I care for my picnic rug?
Caring for your picnic rug is just like caring for any other blanket or throw - the more it's washed, the more the yarn softens. We recommend where possible, spot clean over washing with cold, soapy water. If you need to wash it, hand wash in cold, soapy water or cold machine wash on a delicate cycle only. Hang to air dry. Do not use harsh detergents. Do not use fabric softeners. Do not soak, machine wash, bleach, dry clean, tumble dry or iron. Expect an initial 10% shrinkage once washed, but the rug will expand in size again after use. Avoid contact with suntan lotions and oils as they can mark with heavy use – wash immediately if your items come into contact. Avoid contact with rough surfaces to prevent pulls of the yarn. To remove dirt, shake outside rather than vacuum as it can damage the threads.
