Expect Free People's pieces to be made from fabrics like cotton, silk and wool for a premium, high-end finish. Choose from minimal silhouettes that can be styled in so many ways, as well as more statement options that can be dressed up or down for casual and formal occasions.
As cotton can often be prone to shrinking when it is washed and dried, it is recommended to check the individual care label for each piece and follow the instructions carefully. As cotton is prone to shrinkage, it’s best to clean in water that is 30°C or below. This will help avoid colour fading and dye transfer. Allow to air dry naturally, and give garments a gentle stretch to restore shapes as soon as they come out of the wash.
To help keep your silk items soft and in excellent condition for years to come, it is recommended to follow the instructions on each item’s care label. Some silk is ‘Dry Clean Only’, while other items may have ‘Dry Clean’ as the recommended cleaning method, but other methods may be used. If you do decide to hand wash silk, always use lukewarm water and a specific, mild detergent in order to protect the silk’s natural properties. Avoid spot cleaning silk, as rubbing in only one area can cause the material to lighten in just that spot. Silk should not be tumble dried, and instead can be laid flat to dry naturally. If you must wash in the machine, select a gentle, cold-water cycle, place in a laundry bag for additional protection and promptly remove from the washer to reduce any wrinkles. If the care label on your silk item says that it can be ironed, then use a low iron setting and ideally iron while it is still slightly damp.
Washing wool isn’t as challenging as it seems, and depending on the item, it is simple to spot clean or washable by hand or in the machine. If your wool item is structured, such as a blazer, suit, or coat, then we recommend to spot clean. For wool that is suitable for washing, use a pH neutral detergent and select a gentle cycle on the machine with a temperature of 30°C or less to mimic the actions of traditional hand washing. To reduce the risk of shrinkage, soak your wool item in cold water before machine washing. Dry naturally away from heat and strong direct sunlight. To ensure a silky, smooth appearance to your wool garment, iron inside-out on a low temperature setting, ideally when it is still damp.
