            1.      COTTON

Cotton is durable and easy to care for.

To retain the colour of your cotton shirt, turn it inside out or put it in a pillowcase before washing. Make sure to button all buttons, as this will help retain the shirt’s shape.

Ironing your shirt while it is still damp will give the best result. If the shirt is dry, use a water spray or a steam iron.

Härkila shirts with leather trimmings must not be tumble-dried. Treat trimmings with Härkila Mink Oil Leather Care.

Generally follow the instructions on the care label.

 

2.      FLEECE

Turn fleece inside out before washing. This prolongs the lifespan.

Wash at 30-40°C and spin gently.

Hang dry for the best result. Avoid tumble-drying. If you do not have an alternative then use the lowest possible heat.

Fleece should never be ironed, steamed, pressed or dry-cleaned, as this may cause it to melt. Avoid all use of bleach or fabric softener.

Generally follow the instructions on the care label.

 

3.      LEATHER

Leather is a natural material. It is strong, soft and comfortable. Regular care guarantees a long lifespan and continued performance.

If your leather clothing becomes wet, hang-dry it at room temperature (wipe with a damp cloth before drying if the leather has become dirty).

Treat your leather clothing with Härkila Leather Care after drying.

Generally follow the instructions on the care label.

 

4.      WOOL

Wool is a natural material with a plenitude of unique qualities. You can retain the colour and shape of our wool products by following a few simple guidelines.

Wash in cold water or use the washing machine’s wool cycle. Never use detergents that contain enzymes.

Instead of washing, airing wool garments is a good alternative.

Generally follow the instructions on the care label.

 

5.      GORE-TEX®

Härkila clothing with a waterproof, breathable GORE-TEX® membrane must be washed at 40°C with a gentle spin. Close all zippers and any straps before washing and avoid detergent in powder form, fabric softener, stain remover and bleach, as these products will decrease the performance of the membrane.

Härkila clothing with GORE-TEX® membranes must hang-dry or tumble dry at low heat. When the outer shell is dry, tumble dry for additional 20 minutes to maintain the water-repelling function (DWR).
