Our Care Instructions
Part of our commitment to sustainability means taking good care of our products to guarantee longevity. Here you will find a few simple tips to make your favourite 1001 wishes products last as long as possible.
Generally, we advise to wash clothing items as little as possible. The textiles and environment will thank you for it.
One small tip to savour hard to wash cardigans, the Nooshi cuddle doubles up as a great scarf and catches a lot of drooling and food droppage.
Jumper, trousers, cardigan, bloomer, hat, booties, tights:
Cotton knits are washable at 30 C in the washing machine, using a normal cycle. To be safe use a detergent for delicate items and dry lying flat, this way the items remain soft and do not lose shape. Do not use a high spinning cycle for knitted items or put them in the dryer. Do not be tempted to wash the items too often but instead air out the items after wearing and using the same material try to rub out small stains.
Baby Alpaca knit
Cardigan, bloomer, beanie, booties, blanket
The lovely hand knitted product by myalpaca Copenhagen can be washed cold by hand or on the delicate cycle in your washing machine. Do not use a high spinning cycle for any knitted items or put them in the dryer (ever). We cannot stress this enough: do not be tempted to wash too much but air out the items and rub out stains. If you find that after months of daily use little bubbles have formed, use a pilling shaver and the items will look as good as new.
Items out of this Material are washable at 40 C on a normal cycle. Do use a delicate detergent for wool and silk and refrain from using a high spinning cycle or dryer. Our tip for those really nasty stains like carrot puree: apply ox-gall soap to the fresh stain before washing and after washing put the wet item into direct sunlight for a natural bleaching effect.
Bamboo/cotton jersey mix, pure cotton
The same as wool/silk mixes: items out of this Material are washable at 40 C on a normal cycle. You can use a normal detergent though these materials may be less delicate to wash, still do refrain from using a high spinning cycle or dryer. Our tip for those really nasty stains like carrot puree: apply ox-gall soap to the fresh stain before washing and after washing put the wet item into direct sunlight for a natural bleaching effect.
Merino wool fleece
You can wash the fleece at 30 C on the wool cycle in your washing machine. Use wool detergent and dry flat after pulling the item slightly back into form when still damp. One more time: stay away from those high spinning cycles and the dryer.
Other materials: modal, tencel, and recycled polyester filling
Overall from MarMar, blanket, playmat, sleeping bag
You can wash these materials at 30 C at a normal cycle with normal detergent but like with all of our items, please do not spin too much or use the dryer.
