J76 Bamboo Rayon Blend

Bamboo fabrics preserve their unique qualities when laundered in cold to warm water, up to 60 degrees Celsius, using a mild detergent without bleach. For certain finished garments and fabric types, a gentle cycle may be preferable. If necessary, bamboo fabrics can be tumble dried on a low setting. However, fabrics with vegetable dye should be dried away from direct sunlight to maintain their color vibrancy.



For our Bamboo and hemp fabrics, we recommend washing instead of dry cleaning. Choose the gentle wash cycle or hand wash method, using a mild soap from a reputable brand, whether in powder or liquid form. Avoid bleach, as chlorine bleaches can cause yellowing. During hand washing, ensure thorough rinsing to prevent staining caused by soap residue oxidation on cellulose.


To minimize fabric pilling, follow these steps: Wash your garments inside out on a shorter wash cycle with gentle agitation, and promptly remove them from the dryer. If fabric pills appear, gently stretch the fabric over a curved surface and delicately cut or shave off the pills. This will help maintain the quality and appearance of your Bamboo and hemp fabrics over time.



Line drying in the sun is the preferred method for drying our Bamboo and hemp fabrics, offering optimal results if feasible. However, if machine drying is necessary, it's important to exercise caution. Overdrying can potentially damage the fabric. Therefore, it's advisable to avoid excessive drying to maintain the quality and longevity of the fabric.



Ironing hemp can be easier if the fabric is slightly dampened beforehand. Before ironing, lightly moisten the hemp fabric and then proceed with the ironing process. This technique often produces better results, resulting in a smoother finish.


Avoiding Fabric Stretch

Due to their elasticity, jersey fabrics, including garments made from them, are prone to stretching when hung. Hanging such items can lead to loss of shape over time. To maintain the integrity and shape of jersey garments, it's recommended to fold them neatly for storage instead of hanging. This ensures they retain their original form and prevents any misshaping.
