I’ll never forget the time I didn’t read the care label and washed a lovely merino wool sweater on a hot wash and then added further insult to injury by flinging it in the tumble dryer with the children’s sports gear. It emerged perfectly dry. In perfect proportion. Just five sizes smaller than its original version. It was too small even for my seven year old! Needless to say, I was devastated. But I learnt my lesson the hard way and it was the last time I ever carelessly crammed my laundry into the machine without checking the wash label first.
To save you from a similar fate, we’ve compiled a laundry list to guide you through washing your items so they remain the right size, in the right color and stay in the right shape. Whether it’s your funny ugly Christmas sweater, a patterned party suit, your festive leggings, 3D graphic sweater or animal onesie pyjamas, we’ll make sure you wash it well so you can wear it for a long while.
Funny Ugly Christmas Sweaters
Truly the life and the soul of the festive season, our funny ugly Christmas sweaters and tunics are distinctly different and refreshingly unique. They’re also refreshingly easy to wash and will last for years if you care for them. Made from 100% acrylic, they’ll cope well on a 40-degree gentle wash with non-abrasive washing detergent. Bleach is a no-no. These funny ugly Christmas sweaters are designed to air dry quickly on a washing line or draped over a radiator or can be tumble-dried on a very low heat if you’re short on time.
*LED Funny Ugly Christmas Sweaters cannot be washed in a washing machine, as the water will damage the lights. This sweater needs to be dry-cleaned.
Men’s Party Suits
Expertly tailored for an elegant fit, with an adjustable waist and in-seam, our Men’s Party suits are a stylish way to splash out for a social event or a festive flourish during the Christmas period. Great value, great variety. Simply wear and go. Equally easy to launder, simply pop in a washing machine at 30 degrees on a gentle wash cycle with non-abrasive detergent. No bleach. Air dry and you’ll be good to go. You can iron your men’s party suit on a low heat, inside out with a cloth over the iron to protect the fabric.
* Please do not dry clean our Men’s Party suits; the fabric is not suitable for this mode of cleaning.
Animal Onesie Pyjamas
Bright, colorful and fabulously on-trend, our animal onesie pyjamas are not only adorable to look at, they’re also immensely comfortable. We’ve designed them that way. We’ve also made sure they’re not too much of a hassle to wash. Life is too short for fiddling about with laundry. Wash in your machine on a cold wash with like colors on a gentle cycle and use non-abrasive detergent. Bleach will be a disaster, so avoid it. Soak overnight in detergent to remove stains. To preserve the life of your animal onesie pyjamas, we suggest air drying – which is always better. But if you need to, you can tumble dry it on a low heat.

Wash on a cool gentle wash at 40 degrees with like colors and soft detergents, don’t use bleach ever. Air dry or tumble dry your 3D graphic sweater if necessary, but only a low heat.
