CARE: Milwaukee Fond du Lac Skirt Slub Cotton/Linen

Care instructions for your Milwaukee Fond du Lac skirt

Machine Wash or Hand Wash: Depending on the care label, you can either machine wash the skirt or hand wash it.

Machine Washing:

  • Gentle Cycle: If using a washing machine, select a gentle or delicate cycle to protect the fabric.
  • Cold Water: Use cold water to maintain the colour and prevent any shrinkage.
  • Mild Detergent: Use a mild, preferably eco-friendly detergent to preserve the texture and colour.
  • Turn Inside Out: To protect the textured stripes and prevent abrasion, turn the skirt inside out before washing.

Hand Washing:

  • Fill a Basin: If you prefer hand washing, fill a basin with cold water and add a small amount of mild detergent.
  • Gentle Agitation: Gently agitate the water with your hands to clean the skirt without excessive scrubbing.
  • Rinse Thoroughly: Rinse the skirt with cold water until all detergent is removed.


  • Do Not Wring: Avoid wringing out the skirt to prevent damage to the textured stripes. Instead, gently press out excess water by placing it between clean, dry towels.
  • Lay Flat: Lay the skirt flat on a clean, dry towel to air dry. Ensure it is in its natural shape to preserve the vertical stripes and overall structure.
  • Avoid Direct Sunlight: Do not expose the skirt to direct sunlight for long periods, as it can cause colour fading.


  • Medium Heat: If necessary, use a medium heat setting on your iron to press the skirt, especially focusing on the textured stripes. Ensure it is dry before ironing.
  • Use a Cloth: Place a clean cloth or pressing cloth over the fabric when ironing to protect the stripes and maintain the texture.

By following these care instructions, you can preserve the balance of qualities in the fabric, including durability, softness, and structure, while also maintaining the textured vertical stripes in your Milwaukee skirt.
