MOUNTFORT uses natural fibres such as silk, tencel, and wool which sometimes need a little extra care to ensure they keep looking their best.
SILK - to keep the same quality dry clean only and please choose your dry cleaner carefully.
But you don't have to dry clean silk - if you want your garment to have a softer finish and feel then hand wash it. To do this use cool water and something mild like hand soap or shampoo. Gently press/pulse the submerged garment being careful not to scrunch or squeeze. Rinse. Then rinse with a splash of white vinegar in the water to remove any soap residue and finally give one last rinse. To wring out and dry you will need to press rather than squeeze water out, then lay flat on a towel and roll it up pressing as you go. Lay flat in the shade to dry.
Silk will fade if left in the sun.
TENCEL - cold machine wash with like colours on a gentle cycle. Do not tumble dry. Cool iron if needed.
WOOL - Machine wash in a delicates bag on a wool setting using a mild detergent. Reshape and lay flat to dry. Or hand wash in mild detergent, warm rinse, reshape and lay flat to dry. Do not tumble dry. Warm iron if needed.
