CARE

  • As always, check the care instructions to see if specific handling is needed due to colour, print and/or construction.
  • Machine washing polyamide is usually safe. We recommend washing garments no higher than 40° Celsius and with bleach-free detergent. Washing at 30°Celsius is more eco-friendly and in most cases enough to clean garments with a modern washing machine.
  • Always allow your polyamide garments to air dry as drying this fabric with heat runs the risk of shrinking it.
  • To remove wrinkles from your garment, turn it inside out and use an iron. While ironing fabrics made of 100% polyamide use a cooler iron setting and polyamide blends a medium setting.



CHARACTERISTICS

  • Durable
  • Low crease tendency
  • Soft fibres
  • Quick drying
  • Elastic



ORIGIN

Polyamide materials are synthetic fibres, obtained chemically. They are also known under the name Nylon. Originally this fabric was used to make parachutes and later became a popular material for clothing. Synthetic fibres shed microplastics during washing. Therefore, we recommend to use a GuppyFriend washbag to prevent this.
