Wash & care instructions

We have long experience of working with top quality garments and materials made for coping with the Swedish landscape and climate. It is important to protect against water and wind in order to maintain warmth and comfort. Below you can find out more about the various materials we use.

MOLESKIN
Soft, low-noise, flexible yet durable fabric made from 100 % cotton. The material is impregnated with TEFLON®. Wash at 40º. Allow to drip-dry at room temperature. Moleskin may shrink from 2-3 %.

NÜBUCK
Re-impregnate using waterproofing spray, then brush lightly.

FIBREFUR
Made from 100 % polyester. Fibrefur warms even when wet. Wash at 40º C . Brush and shake out garment after washing.

FLEECE
Very similar to fibrefur. Soft, quiet and warm.

MICRO
Low-noise, light, durable fabric. Made of 100 % polyester. Impregnated with TEFLON®. Wash at 40º. Dries rapidly after washing or when wet. Microfibre may be damaged by embers or sparks. Impregnation is reactivated by tumble-drying.

LEATHER
Garments made of leather or with leather reinforcements should be washed using a mild washing agent and dried at room temperature, never in front of an open fire or in a tumble-drier. Leather should be greased when necessary after washing or becoming wet.

POLYAMIDE
The polyamide used in our Titan range is a synthetic fibre which may be compared with polyester or nylon*. It is a fine-weave fabric specially developed for active wear and is extremely durable. Wash at 40º C and dry at room temperature. It is a quick-dry material and the Supplex®- yarn in the fabric makes it feel soft against the skin. The fabric features UV40+ sun protection under the current standard which means that it provides excellent protection against ultraviolet radiation. The fabric is certified in accordance with the OEKO-TEX Standard 100.

General

Fabric softener should never be used for any of our products that are impregnated or equipped with GORE-TEX® or COVERTEX®. Always check the washing instructions sewn into a garment as exceptions occur. Always wash using little washing agent and plenty of water. Never allow wet leather to lie in crumpled heaps. When drip-drying, gently stretch seams a few times. Trousers should always be dried with the heavy end down. Never dry garments in front of an open fire. All camouflaged clothes should be washed inside out. Zips should always be fastened during washing. Fasten any buttons or Velcro straps before washing.
