Heirloom – Textile Care Instructions

Heirloom textiles are made from Silk and/or Wool fibres, often blended and hand woven.

TO WASH OUR TEXTILES:

EUCALYPT DYES/PRINTS:
Our dyes are made from native plants. Although colourfast, for best results:

  • Wash by hand in rainwater or filtered drinking water (chemicals in tap water can have a bleaching effect over time).
    Use either a small drop of ECOWOOL wash detergent (go to www.ecostore.co.nz to purchase) or a few drops of Eucalyptus oil in your wash basin.
    Hang to dry in shade. Press with warm iron.

    HAND FELTED PIECES:

  • Handwash in lukewarm water with ECOWOOL wash detergent (go to www.ecostore.co.nz to purchase). Delicate machine spin excess water.
    Dry flat out of sun. Press with warm iron.
