CARE GUIDE

To maintain the softness and durability of your pyjamas, follow these care instructions:

Mulberry Silk

This item is not suitable for machine washing and should only be washed by hand with cool water. 

  • Hand Wash: Use cool water and a detergent specifically for silk. Gently agitate and rinse thoroughly.  Use a mild, acidic detergent; avoid using alkaline washing water. 
  • Drying: Do not wring. Lay flat on a towel and roll up to remove excess water, then lay flat to dry in a shaded area.
  • Avoid Heat: Never use a dryer or direct sunlight for drying.
  • Ironing: If ironing is necessary, use a low heat setting and place a cloth between the iron and the fabric.

Silky Satin

Designed for both functionality and style, this pyjama set is easy to care for with a gentle machine wash, ensuring it maintains its softness and vibrant color wash after wash.

  • Machine Wash: Use cold water and a gentle detergent on a delicate cycle.
  • Hand Wash: For extra care, wash by hand with cold water and mild detergent.
  • Drying: Avoid the dryer. Lay flat to dry or hang in a shaded area to prevent damage from direct sunlight.
  • Ironing: Use a low-temperature setting and iron on the reverse side if needed.

Modal

  • Machine Wash: Use cold water and a regular detergent on a gentle cycle. Avoid chlorine bleach as it can weaken the fibers.
  • Drying: Tumble dry on low to medium heat or hang to air dry. Remove promptly to reduce wrinkling.
  • Stain Treatment: Pre-treat any stains with a small amount of detergent before washing.
  • Ironing: If needed, use a medium-hot iron on the reverse side of the fabric. 

Bamboo

By following these care instructions, your bamboo pyjamas will remain soft, durable, and comfortable for a long time​:

  • Washing: Use cold to warm water (up to 40°C) with a gentle detergent. Avoid bleach as it can weaken the fibers and cause discoloration.
  • Drying: Line drying in the shade is best to preserve the fabric's integrity. If you use a dryer, choose a low or cool setting to avoid overheating.
  • Ironing: If necessary, iron on a low setting. Ironing when the fabric is slightly damp can make this process easier.
  • General Tips: Avoid hanging bamboo jersey fabrics to prevent stretching. Instead, fold them neatly when storing.

Linen

Embrace the natural texture of linen by washing gently in cold water and drying in the shade. Enjoy the relaxed elegance it offers.

  • Wash: Machine wash on a gentle cycle with cold water. Use a mild detergent to preserve the natural fibers. Avoid bleach as it can weaken the fabric.
  • Dry: Tumble dry on a low setting or line dry in the shade to prevent any potential shrinkage or damage. Avoid direct sunlight to maintain the fabric's color and integrity.
  • Iron: If desired, iron on a medium setting while the fabric is slightly damp. For a more relaxed look, skip ironing to enjoy linen's natural texture.

 

Cotton

Keep your cotton pyjamas soft and vibrant by washing in cold water and drying on low heat. Perfect for maintaining everyday comfort.

  • Wash: Machine wash with cold water and a gentle cycle. Use regular detergent, and avoid harsh chemicals like bleach that can degrade the fabric.
  • Dry: Tumble dry on low to medium heat. To minimize wrinkles, remove promptly from the dryer. Alternatively, line dry in a shaded area to keep the fabric's vibrant colour.
  • Iron: For a crisp look, iron on a medium setting. Cotton can withstand higher temperatures but avoid overheating to prevent any damage to the fibers.
