Plant-based artificial fibre that is soft and cool.
This fibre loses some resistance when damp and cannot support high temperatures during machine washing or ironing. Should be hand-washed. Do not wring or spin excessively to remove excess water and air dry out of direct sunshine.
Iron from the inside, placing some kind of protection between the item and the iron and iron at no more than 110ºC.
The fabric may shrink or expand if not washed according to the instructions. However, it normally reverts to its natural state if hung for 1 to 2 days.
This kind of care also goes for items with a mixture of viscose, lyocell and modal for instance.
Polyamide/ Acrylics and polyester
These are synthetic fibres that are extremely durable and do not deform easily.
They should always be hand-washed, particularly knitted items to increase the item's lifespan, though these items can also be washed in a machine at medium temperatures. Generally try to use a fabric softener to reduce the static electricity that is common in fabrics such as polyester.
You can tumble dry at a low temperature to remove excess humidity, but dry the rest in the fresh air. This helps the item to maintain its original shape and not wrinkle. If you still need to iron, use a low temperature
It can normally be hand-washed, but for best results use dry cleaning.
Always follow the cleaning instructions.
