Care of felt

Please care for your natural fibre garment, footwear or accessory by following these instructions:

Store your product with lavender bags /sachets – they smell great & help keep moths and other creepy crawlies at bay. Cedar wood is also excellent for this. 

Our products are rinsed in a felting finish at the end of the felting process which assists in protecting them.

As our products are naturally dirt & odour repellent you will find that you very rarely, if ever, need to wash them.

Slipper Care:

If you do accidently spill something on your slippers or soil them, you can easily spot clean them with some natural soap and a damp cloth. Rub gently and the stain should come out. From time to time,  remove grit from inside your slippers by using a vacuum cleaner. Just use the bare tube for this.

 

We no longer recommend complete submersion in a hand wash due to a change in the adhesive we use on our soles.  

 

DO NOT PUT SLIPPERS IN THE WASHING MACHINE AS THEY WILL SHRINK.

 

 

 

The enclosed linen twine is a little repair kit for the leather soles. You will most likely not need to use it but we include it so that you can get the most wear out of your slippers.

 

You may wish to wipe the leather soles of your slippers with a damp cloth from time to time to keep them looking their best.

For products other than slippers with soles:

  • Use luke-warm water with a little liquid wool wash (or mild shampoo).
  • Submerge your felted item and leave it to soak for a few minutes.
  • Gently swish your felted item through the water a few times.
  • Rinse thoroughly using same temperature water, and same method. A slurp of vinegar will help to restore the pH of the fibres.
  • Do not rub or agitate the product or it may shrink.

You can remove excess water and speed up the drying process by placing your felt item on “spin only” in your washing machine for around 5 -8 minutes.

DO NOT USE RINSE AND SPIN CYCLE  OR WASH CYCLE  FOR THIS.

DO NOT USE WASHING MACHINE or TUMBLE DRIER TO LAUNDER YOUR FELT.
