WASHING / FABRIC CARE
HOW TO LOOK AFTER YOUR CAP AFTER PURCHASE:
This page is meant to be a handy future guide for washing instructions, if in doubt & also just so you can look after your cap for as long as poss.
SO heads up, you know how your jeans shrink sometimes when you wash them too high? Well some fabrics shrink if they get washed too high. That's just the natural character of them, down to the fibres they are made from.
AND with headwear, that means if they get tighter, then they don't fit any more. No one wants that!
Each cap is also labelled with washing instructions & with the main fabric content of your cap.
But for ref please see below:
Like your jeans, denim can shrink really badly if washed too high and especially if tumble dried.
Wash on 30 degrees and leave to air dry. Iron on medium-high setting once dry.
Wool is a really fragile fabric, jumpers made out of it should always be washed on a delicate wash, so if your cap is made from wool then wash it on low with your cardies and jumpers.
30 degrees, do not EVER tumble dry! Iron on mid to low setting once dry.
Linen again is fragile and will soften up the more times it is washed. Which should make your cap become more and more comfortable.
Wash low and iron on a medium setting.
HOW THE F**K DO I IRON A CAP?
You can get away with ironing most of your cap on a regular ironing board but to iron the curves it's a bit more tricky. You can balance a cap on the end of the ironing board pretty well with minimal swearing to get it to stay put BUT..
If you want to get extra geeky then consider getting a "tailor's ham", yep ham. It is essentially a lump form of an ironing board and is what a lot of pattern cutters and tailors use to iron curve seams and smaller pieces of clothing.
They retail for approx £10-20 and are found easily online. That's our top tip!
