Care: RAYON/LINEN FABRIC for Fremantle


To ensure that your Fremantle dress remain in excellent condition, please follow these care instructions:
  • Machine Wash with Care: Use a gentle cycle and cold water for washing your rayon/linen blend Fremantle dress. Avoid using hot water, as it can cause shrinkage and damage to the fibres.
  • Mild Detergent: Opt for a mild, gentle detergent to preserve the colours and texture of the fabric. Harsh chemicals can affect the fibres negatively.
  • Turn Inside Out: Before putting the garment in the washing machine, turn it inside out. This helps prevent excessive friction and minimises the chances of fading or pilling on the fabric's outer surface.
  • Separate Colours: When washing, especially for the first few times, it's a good idea to wash your rayon/linen blend dress separately from other items to prevent potential colour bleeding.
  • Avoid Overloading: Don't overcrowd the washing machine to allow enough space for the fabric to move freely. This minimises the risk of wrinkles and damage during washing.
  • Skip the Dryer: It's best to air-dry your rayon/linen blend dress. Lay it flat on a clean, dry towel to prevent stretching or misshaping. Avoid direct sunlight to prevent colour fading.
  • Avoid Hanging: Hanging a damp rayon/linen garment can cause it to stretch. Instead, lay it flat to dry or drape it over a drying rack.
  • Minimal Wrinkles: Both rayon and linen have a tendency to wrinkle. If you prefer a smoother look, you can iron the garment on a low to medium setting while it's slightly damp. Alternatively, embrace the natural texture for a more relaxed appearance.
  • Storage: When not wearing your garment, store it in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Using padded hangers for hanging and folding neatly are good storage options.
  • Handle with Care: Be cautious with accessories like belts and jewellery, as they can snag or damage the delicate fibres.
  • Avoid Bleaching: Never use bleach or harsh chemicals, as they can weaken the fibres and cause discolouration.

Following these care instructions will help extend the lifespan of your rayon/linen blend Fremantle dress and keep it looking great. Always remember to check the care label too.
