Many of our garments are produced in small factories in Italy and the cottons and linens are often dyed with vegetable dyes so we recommend that when you wash them you do so at a low temperature using a mild detergent designed for use at low temperatures to avoid the colours fading. Any fading is not a garment fault it is the nature of the natural fabrics.
Knitwear is better to be washed as little as possible we recommend that you wear it with a camisole underneath and hang garments out to air. If you do need to wash a garment use a mild detergent designed for knitwear and a low temperature wash setting, most modern machines have a hand wash setting which is best especially for our cashmere blends. The more natural the blend the more care is needed.
