Help your clothes stand the test of time
While we pride ourselves on the quality of every garment we make, time and wear do take a toll on your garments. Properly caring for your Stanfield’s garments can drastically improve their recovery, longevity and comfort. Taking good care of cleaning, drying and storing your clothing will make them look new for longer and help them stand the test of time. We want you to get as much as possible out of each and every one of our pieces and are here to help you make that happen.
Caring for wool
Wool is one of the oldest fibre types used here at Stanfield’s and one that has certainly proven it can stand the test of time.
To get the longest and most vibrant life out of your wool garments there are some additional steps to add to your normal laundry routine.
In general, we recommend washing in cold water (30°C), laying flat to dry and to reshape the layer(s). This will allow the fibres to recover to their original shape and bring out the best of the natural resilience and spring of wool. Do not bleach your wool.
Once your wool is completely dry, it can be aired out inside or outside for a fresh new start. We recommend gently folding and storing your knitted wool garments in drawers as a best practice.
Your wool can be machine dried but does run the risk of shrinking if done. We always recommend laying flat to dry whenever possible. If you choose to iron your wool, always do it at a low temperature (never exceeding 110°C). For professional dry-cleaning, dry-clean, normal cycle, any cycle other than trichloroethylene.
But what about moths? If you are storing your wool long-term and not using regularly or storing in your daily-use closet, there are precautionary steps you can take to best store your garments. Food stains and body oils can attract moths. Before long-term storage, ensure your garment is clean and always store in airtight bags or containers. You may also choose to apply a moth repellent to your garments but remember not to place them directly on the garment.
Caring for cotton/polyester
Our trusted blend of cotton and polyester has been keeping Canadians comfortable for generations. These are our suggested care instructions to get the most out of your new Stanfield’s shirt.
On its own, cotton can shrink when washed or for true sizing, can be preshrunk during the manufacturing process. A cotton/polyester blend is far less likely to shrink than a 100% cotton garment. Our blend combines the natural lightweight breathability of cotton with the durability and wrinkle resistance of polyester.
Our blended garments are very versatile and flexible when it comes to caring for them. These garments can be washed and dried at almost any temperature with no worries of shrinking or damaging.
For the best results, we recommend washing in cold water (30°C), not using bleach and tumble drying at a low heat permanent press setting. If you prefer to iron your blended garments, we recommend doing so at a low temperature (never exceeding 110°C). For professional dry-cleaning, dry-clean, normal cycle, any cycle other than trichloroethylene.
