The first step to a long-lasting wardrobe is proper care. By investing in timeless, high-quality products and caring for your garments, you can help reduce consumption and thereby the burden on our climate.
With two collections per year and multiple design repeats, we always aim to design timeless garments you can keep for years. With more than a century of expertise in our field, we create long-life garments made from organic and natural materials.
Storage:Lay your woollen clothing flat to dry and store them by folding and stacking them neatly in your closet or drawer. This helps to avoid stretching. If you plan to store your knitwear during summer, we suggest reading our guide to avoiding moths here.
Washing and drying:Clothes made from merino wool require less washing as it is odour resistant and naturally antibacterial. For that reason, we recommend taking a thoughtful approach to washing by washing no more than necessary. Take advantage of the amazing self-cleansing properties of the merino wool and air out your clothing to regain a fresh feeling. If you must wash, here is a quick washing guide:
- Machine wash on a wool setting at 30 degrees
- Hand wash
- Use wool soap
Pilling:Natural materials like wool tend to produce excess wool, also known as pilling. It is unavoidable when you use untreated, natural materials. However, there are several ways to remove excess pilling gently and easily. Simply brush the surface gently with a brush or comb.
Repair:Your clothing is an investment. Should you be unlucky and get a hole in your clothing from DILLING, a small repair can often extend its life. Therefore, we are offering small patches in different colours and qualities, so you can easily repair your clothing. If you are in need of a patch you can find them here.
In our repair guide here, you can see how to make a repair with our patches and how to do visible mending.
