Wool

Dry Clean or Hand wash. Hand Wash instructions – Only use tepid water with a mild detergent or soap.  Gently squeeze garment.  Do not wring out. Blot out excess water with a towel.  Lay flat and air dry. Never use hot water, the dryer or any heat source.  The wool will shrink. If you have a washing machine with a Wool Cycle be cautious as some wool items still shrink.  If your machine is gentle enough for wool please remember not to put the item in the dryer but air dry.

Linen

Linen can be washed in the washing machine. It may shrink slightly so it’s recommended not to use very hot temperature on your garments. It can be dried in the drier but again not too hot for your clothes. As linen has a crinkling property do not dry completely so you can iron when slightly damp so as to get the creases out more easily.  Saying that many new fashion clothes incorporate the creased look naturally. When linen is new it can be quite stiff but will soften with each wash..

Silk

It is recommended to hand wash or dry clean silk. Hand wash in luke warm water with a gentle detergent. Silk is a delicate fabric so let it soak for a few minutes and then gently agitate. Rinse gently and air dry, out of direct sunlight (this can fade the dye). It is possible to machine wash silk if you have a particular cycle for silk but remember NO dryer. Always air dry.

Ties

Dry clean only.

Pewter

Pewter is a medium hard metal that ages well, developing a greyish patina over time. You can leave it to age (as many do) or use a polishing cloth and rub to bring back a lustrous shine. Daily use normally keeps it shiny. If dirty wash with hot soapy water, rinsing well. It can safely be worn against the skin.

Silver

Silver jewellery is made with Sterling Silver (925). It can be cleaned with a silver polishing cloth if tarnished. A handy tip – if you store your silver jewellery in something black such as black velvet or black tissue paper it will not tarnish so quickly.  It is light that causes the oxidisation process.

Heathergems

Please do not immerse your jewellery in water or wear whilst bathing, showering or swimming. Do not allow jewellery to come in contact with hairspray, makeup, perfume and substances containing corrosive chemicals. Also affected by perspiration. Our jewellery needs to be cleaned on an on going basis to keep it looking its best. To clean sterling silver and silver plated fittings use a silver cloth and gently rub. Do not subject your jewellery or gifts to any undue stress or pressure.
