Hedge Fabrics & Garment Care

With all of our athletic fabrics we have chosen carefully to blend the technical with natural fibers to maximize flexibilty, strength and breathability for long lasting wear. We prefer to work with natural fibers as they are less susceptible to scent and stain. To extend the life of your timeless Hedge pieces we hope you'll follow our advice which we have gained from the experts in the fabric mills, wise mothers and grandmothers and fashion pros whose experience with luxury fabrics have saved many a garment.

Cashmere: Ellis Cardigan, Hoodie, Zellie Wrap Vest, Beanies
Cashmere is one of the finest natural fibers in the world and combed from the undercoat of Chinese and Mongolian goats. It is precious and requires a little more care and attention but will last a lifetime and can improve with age. Do not be afraid of this tough fiber; we throw ours in the washer!

Cashmere Care Options:
Cashmere knit wear can be put in the washing machine, hand washed or dry-cleaned. We recommend hand washing.

Dry Clean
This will work fine, but scent may return and the chemicals from dry cleaning make it harder to wash and alters the texture.We do not interchange dry cleaning with home washing-choose one style. Do not do both.


Washing Machine
You may put cashmere by itself or with like colors and natural fabrics (it helps to use a mesh bag to prevent pilling and excess agitation) in the washing machine on delicate (or woolens) cold with mild detergent. Do not put in dryer. Lay flat.



Handwash: only with like colors or alone
1. Soak garment in Luke warm water with gentle soap. We recommend The Laundress (toxin free). Woolite will suffice.
2. Gently agitate suds through fabric to distribute, do not rub or wring or stretch the garment.
3. Rinse thoroughly but carefully in clean lukewarm water.
4. Saturated item should not be lifted before excess water has been gently pressed out as they may stretch. A short light spin in washing machine will remove most of the water.
5. Lay flat on large towel and roll up to absorb excess water.
6. Smooth garment back into original shape and place flat on a dry towel - dry naturally away from direct heat such as radiators or sunlight..
7. Once dry, if wrinkly, use steam to release. You can press lightly with cool iron but it can flatten the natural pile so go lightly.

PILLING: Cashmere can pill, it’s natural. It is caused by some of the loose fiber tangling together as areas of your garment are rubbed during wear. You can use a sweater comb or stone to remove.

STORAGE: Do not hang as the shape will distort on length and shoulders. TO avoid moths during storage use cedar or in a breathable bag.

ODORS: Use scented vinegar Laundress makes lavender soak 30 min. Or spray on armpits before washing.
