Care and wash instructions

All fabrics made from natural fibres are more delicate than synthetic ones. Carefully pay attention to the following care tips and features.

Alaska fabric is possible to wash in washing machine´s gentle 30° programme but to avoid possible streaking we recommend hand wash programme. Avoid a high spinning speed. Streaking may occur especially in darker colours. For the same reason do not load the machine too full. It is better to always wash in smaller quantities, with plenty of water. Larger items, such as loose furniture covers, should be washed in a separate container or taken to a laundry service for washing. If the fabric is washed at a laundry service, it is safest to choose dry cleaning.

Because fabrics containing natural fibres can fade slightly with each wash, we recommend that you wash all adjacent covers at once to avoid possible color differences. Local cleaning of the fabric is not recommended as the washed area may be left lighter that the rest of the fabric.

Fabrics containing natural fibres are highly sensitive to shrinkage compared to synthetic fabrics. This can cause problems, especially when placing shrunk, large, loose covers back on top of the furniture. Placing the loose covers is easier when the fabric is a bit moist still after washing. To avoid shrinkage, fading and streaking we recommend dry cleaning. Avoid harsh light and especially direct sunlight. Iron from the backside or through a white cloth.
