Care Guide

Use the general guidance below to ensure that your purchase remain in perfect condition. Please check the label on your items prior to any cleaning to ensure you have the correct instructions.


Please note that Markus Lupfer items often include hand embellished or hand embroidered detailing, therefore care should be taken when wearing and cleaning.

Merino Wool

To ensure you maintain your jumpers in perfect condition we suggest that you dry clean, or hand wash in cold water. Do not twist or wring your jumpers and do not put into a tumble dryer. Choose a mild detergent suitable for delicates. Lay flat and allow to dry naturally. Piling can be easily removed by using an electric depiller or sweater stone.

Cashmere

Dry clean or hand wash cold only. Do not twist or wring your jumpers and do not put into a tumble dryer. Choose a mild detergent suitable for delicates. Lay flat and allow to dry naturally. Pilling is a natural characteristic of the long fibres and can be easily removed by using a cashmere comb, electric depiller, or sweater stone. Avoid depilling too often as this can result in holes. Do not hang cashmere items as this can cause them to loose their shape. As a natural material cashmere can attract moths so add a natural moth repellent when storing cashmere.

Printed Cotton Tees

Velvet Devore

Dry clean only.

Silk

To store silk items ensure they are hung in a cool dry place. If you are storing for a long period then clean prior to storing in a breathable fabric bag. Silk can attract moths so if you add a natural moth repellent to your bag this will provide additional protection. When wearing try to avoid contact with liquids. Dry clean only.
