As always, please consult the care label on your product, as it may contain specific guidance due to colour, print, construction and/or end-use.
Consider if your garment requires washing or if airing it out is enough to make it fresh again.
Standard machine wash cycle is not advised due to intense twisting, which can damage clothing. For some viscose garments, dry cleaning is the only option! If the care label indicates so, please take it to a professional cleaner.
Viscose and Lyocell are best washed using the hand wash cycle or wool programme of your washing machine. Even 30° Celsius is sometimes too hot for viscose or Lyocell, so in general we recommend to wash in cold water and to select a low speed cycle (up to 600 rpm).
Our top tip for viscose? After washing, place your garment on a thick towel and allow it to absorb the water. This process gets rid of excess water without having to wring out your clothing.
Always allow your viscose and lyocell products to air dry. This is better for the environment and also prevents any shrinking and/or tears.
Iron your viscose or lyocell garments turned inside out on a low temperature. Be careful not to press the seams as this may leave marks. You can also carefully steam the garment on a low level.
In general, be aware that viscose and lyocell shrinks and wrinkles easily during washing and may feel a bit stiff afterwards. However, carefully ironing or steaming your garment will expand and soften the material again.
