General Fabric Care

There are some simple rules to follow when washing your NoKiimo garments, to ensure a long life for the garment and that they are cleaned effectively without damaging their technical properties.

  • After use, do not leave the garment rolled up in a wet state, as this will encourage        bacteria and mould, membrane delamination and/or colour migration.
  • Always follow the washing instructions on the garment label, if these cannot be found,  then you can contact www.nokiimo.com
  • All garments we recommend dry cleaning or hand wash at 30ºC. Other opption is to hang  it outside in fresh air.
  • Always wash separately.
  • Use hand wash using neutral detergent and avoiding the use of bleach.
  • Do not tumble dry. Dry flat and avoid drying in direct strong sunlight.

Dry cleaning

  • Hand wash. Max temp 30 C
  • Use delicate cycle
  • Do not tumble dry
  • Iron at maximum 150 C
  • Do not spinn
  • Dry flat

COTTON: is one of the most widely used fibres and may be easily laundered, as it withstands high temperatures and long spin cycles. The greater the temperature, the greater the possibility of shrinkage. Cotton fabrics are strong and flexible and highly wash-resistent. Cotton may be ironed at a high temperature.

LINEN: caring for this fabric is fairly simple if you follow a series of basic guidelines. Linen may be washed as cotton, following the basic guidelines outlined above. Washing favours the aspect of linen as it renovates the exterior layer of the fibre giving it a shinier, softer aspect with each progressive wash. However as is logical, high temperatures and the use of aggressive detergents may reduce the life-cycle of the fabric. Therefore, we recommend the use of neutral, bleach-free detergents in order to maintain its natural broken white colour or, in the case of dyed fabrics, limit the use of bleach and control the washing temperature. Avoid spinning to facilitate ironing, although a light cycle is fine. Linen wrinkles easily and should be ironed at a high temperature whilst still damp.

SILK: silk fabrics are rather delicate and require particular care. We recommend they be hand-washed, using neutral detergent and avoiding the use of bleach. Avoid spinning and using the dryer. On drying, lie flat or drip-dry in the shade and then iron at a low temperature. Should you find a particularly difficult stain consult a professional.

WOOL: on dealing with an animal protein fibre we should take particular care. Wool should be washed in cold water or at a low temperature on the delicate-cycle as to the contrary, the fabric could shrink considerably. Do not spin or use the dryer. Do not drip-dry, but lie flat in order avoid deformation. Iron according to the temperature indications outlined on the care label.

POLYESTER: polyester is highly resistant and wrinkles very little. This fabric may be machine washed in tepid water at an average temperature of 40ºC and may also be dry cleaned. Iron at a low temperature
