Viscose

A man-made cellulosic fibre, viscose originates from wood and shares its origins with acetate, lyocell, modal and cupro. Viscose has a high absorbency, is highly breathable and is prone to shrinking up to 5% when washed.

Please ensure you follow the wash care label carefully to ensure the garment lasts for its optimum lifespan.

HOW TO WASH AND DRY VISCOSE
A STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE
HAND WASHING

If your wash care label instructs to cold hand wash, follow the below steps.

STEP 1
Using a clean bowl, dissolve a small amount of delicate wash detergent into lukewarm water at a max temperature of 30°C.

STEP 2
Submerge the item and gently agitate with your hands, ensuring the soap is evenly distributed.

STEP 3
Leave to soak for up to 20 minutes.

STEP 4
Rinse the item well with cool water. Do not wring, instead, press the water out of the item.

STEP 5
Your item will have a different feel now it is wet due to the high absorbency qualities of the fibres. Once this is dry and ironed the texture will return to its original quality.

MACHINE WASHING

If your wash care label instructs to delicate machine wash, follow the below steps.

STEP 1
Turn the viscose item inside out.

STEP 2
Ideally place your item in a mesh/guppy bag – this helps to prevent snags and damage to the item.

STEP 3
Add delicate washing detergent to your machine according to the load size (try not to include other items such as jeans that may increase agitation).

STEP 4
Select the delicate machine wash cycle on your washing machine, ensuring the temperature is not above 30 degrees and has a very low spin cycle.

STEP 5
Your item will have a different hand feel now it is wet due to the high absorbency qualities of the fibres. Once this is dry and ironed the texture will return to its original quality.

DRYING

STEP 1
Lay garments in their natural shapes to dry. Do not use heat or put them in the tumble dryer.

STEP 2
To remove the creases, turn the item inside out and ensure the iron is set to a cool setting. Place a damp cloth between your item and the iron, this will help reduce the creases and help to prevent glazing at the seams.
