Please Wash with Love & Care

 

To keep your new purchase looking lovely & turning heads for a long time to come, please wash with  heart  & care.

 

Washing your Organic Cotton Blankets/Coverlets

  • Although all tullibee organic cotton products can be washed in the machine at 40°C, we recommend you wash at 30°C wherever possible. This will help to save energy & do a little bit to care for the environment & we promise it will still get rid of that pesky dirt
  • It is always best to wash products of similar colours together
  • With 100% knitted cotton fabrics a little shrinkage is to be expected after the first couple of washes (don’t worry though we have taken this into account with the sizing )
  • To keep the prints looking lovely, & brighter for longer we suggest washing products inside out where possible & with similar colours
  • Like any knitwear products it is recommended to reshape whilst damp
  • To help with reshaping we also suggest a cool iron on the reverse of the product
  • Tullibee organic cotton products like to be line dried naturally. Please do not tumble dry, this uses a massive amount of energy & doesn’t make our fabrics very happy!
  • Please do not dry clean & also remember any bleaching products will just make the cotton fibres very unhappy & those lovely bold colours downright miserable

 

Washing your Knitted Lambswool Blankets & Lambswool Cushion Covers

  • Pure wool is naturally antibacterial & those amazing wool fibres resist spills & stains so should only require minimal cleaning.   However, we all know that things do get dirty, so follow these instructions & your products will maintain their beautiful appearance for years to come
  • Although all our pure Lambswool products can be washed in the machine on a delicate hand wash programme ONLY, we would strongly suggest washing them using your very own hands if possible. It is really important not to agitate to the wool too much whilst washing, so no heavy scrubbing!  
  • Always use an approved wool detergent, it will have been specially created to be much much kinder to your lovely wool product & ensure it lasts for years to come
  • It is best to wash products of similar colours together
  • Like any knitwear products it is recommended to reshape whilst damp, drying flat will also help to maintain shape & avoid any distortion
  • Please do not tumble dry & remember any products containing bleach will be far too harsh on your lovely natural wool
  • A gentle steam iron on the reverse can also help to reshape after washing & drying
  • Dry cleaning is an option although given the chemicals used in the dry-cleaning process we would suggest hand washing is a much nicer way to clean products (especially if the product is intended to be used for baby)
  • Pilling or little bobbles of fluff will naturally occur on pure wool products through use. These are just some of those lovey soft fibres getting fuzzy & loose on the surface, whilst other fibres just won’t let them escape & fall off.   To get rid of these pesky pills, simply pull off by hand or one of those hand-held pill remover devices can be a good alternative if used with care.
