GARMENT CARE TIPS
You have just acquired a garment made by the family owned company Dalmard Marine. We advise you to follow these garment care tips so that it lasts as long as possible.
To each material its care
You have just acquired a woollen coat ?
- Wool is a « living » material that requires you to let it rest from time to time.
- Hang your coat on a hanger. In the car, lay it flat.
- Brush it regularly with a suitable brush.
- To consolidate its machine-sewn buttons, use linen thread for its flexibility and strength.
- Occasionally clean (twice a year) the collar and cuffs with a dry cloth and cleaning water.
- Never wash it in the washing machine. Deposit once every 3 years at the dry cleaners without re-waterproofing. If it's a duffle-coat, isolate the leather ties.
You have just acquired a sweater, cardigan or scarf made of wool? Or a Breton shirt, jacket or scarf made of cotton?
- Wash your garment at the machine with the delicate program.
- Dry it flat or on a hanger to maintain its original shape. Avoid the clothes dryer which damage clothes faster.
- Iron it softly with a delicate temperature.
