Washing and Care Instructions

 

Always wash your garments inside-out with a mild detergent. If possible, avoid drying your screen printed t-shirts in a dryer, as this type of drying can damage the screen printing. Instead, air dry the shirts to retain the imprinting. Iron your screen printed garments inside-out.


Machine wash inside-out with cold water and tumble dry on low heat or line dry. For best results use mild detergent and avoid the use of fabric softener and dryer sheets.


Pre-rinse under cold running water. Mix a small amount of mild detergent or dishwashing liquid into cold water. Gently squeeze the liquid through the fabric several times. DO NOT use specially formulated wool wash, harsh detergents, or chlorine bleach as these will ruin your item. Rinse several times in cold water. Don’t worry if the water becomes colored when washing, this is normal, just continue rinsing until the water runs clear. Roll between two clean towels and squeeze gently without wringing. DO NOT allow the embroidery to touch itself as colors may bleed into one another. Tumble dry on the lowest setting of your dryer or hang your item to dry. If ironing is required, DO NOT place the iron directly onto the embroidered portion of the garment.


Beware that with the first wash of a pigment dyed item, colors may bleed onto other items. To mitigate damage to other clothing articles, please wash this item alone for the first few washes. Machine wash inside-out with cold water and tumble dry on low heat or line dry. For best results use mild detergent and avoid the use of fabric softener and dryer sheets.


If you are going to wash your hat in the washing machine, use cold water and the most gentle wash setting.

Prior to washing a hat, check the manufacturer’s tag for washing instructions. If you’re dealing with a stained hat, make sure to apply prewash before tossing the hat in the washing machine.

Never dry your hat in a dryer, it will likely shrink and lose the original shape. Rather, let it air dry and find something such as an old t-shirt to stuff it with so that it will retain the original shape as much as possible. Depending on seasonality, air drying a hat typically takes around 24 hours to complete.
