Washing and Sizing
Our Wooly Hedgenettle Vests are meant to be worn fitted. They have a good amount of stretch and we use stretchy thread on the hems. They run true to size. If you have a particularly chubby baby, you could get the next size up and roll the sleeves. In our experience (yes, we put all of our clothing to the test on real kids) they wash beautifully both by hand and in the machine. Please, please put them in a lingerie bag if washing them in the machine so that the fabric does not snag.
Cotton Washing Instructions
To ensure longevity of our organic cotton fabrics, we recommend machine washing on cold and tumble drying on low. If you're particularly adventurous, our clothing will appreciate a nice hand wash and being hung to dry. All of our organic cotton is pre-shrunk!
Wool Washing Instructions
Our ZQ Merino wool is machine washable! Please hand or machine wash cold on wool/delicate cycle with wool detergent and lay flat to dry. You can tumble dry on a no heat setting. Do not wring, bleach, or dry clean. Warm iron is okay. Please use a lingerie bag if machine washing to prevent snags.
For wool detergent, wee recommend using Unicorn Fibre Wash and Fibre Rinse (conditioner) for the best results. It is HE safe and they are made in the USA without dyes, phosphates, fillers or irritants. Danielle has been using their products on wool for years and she believes it is by far superior to other wool washes. If you like unscented, please choose their "Beyond" Fibre line. Wee will have Unicorn products available in our shop soon!
