You will find that this wool/silk vest won't need washing as much as a cotton one, so you don't need as many and you won’t need to wash it often. Cosilana recommend a hand wash; we find that these vests are machine washable on a 30C gentle wool cycle. Re-shape your short sleeve wool/silk vest while damp - ie, stretch it out a little. Use a detergent designed for delicate natural fabrics such as wool or silk. We recommend one of our wool shampoos or Ecover liquid detergent for delicates (normal detergents are designed for cotton, and are too harsh for wool’s natural fibres.)
Ethically made by...
This lovely wool/silk vest for children is ethically made by Cosilana in Germany. Cosilana's goal is to make healthy, pollution-free natural clothing of a very high quality, offered at a fair price. We think that they're succeeding and we're pleased to be supporting them, particularly as they take a very environmentally conscious approach to textile manufacture.
All Cosilana cotton is organic and their wool, while not organic, is pollutant-free and certified by IVN as meeting their standards of a high quality natural fabric.
