Garment care

Inspired by the best of the past, we create timeless garments in sustainable materials. Clothes to love today and for the rest of your life. Jumperfabriken is a Swedish clothing company with a focus on high-quality garments in natural materials where the collections are timeless and durable. Our clothes do not have a "best before date" but last both in terms of quality and fashion throughout the years. Our idea is that you build your wardrobe piece by piece and that patterns, fit and colors feel current regardless of season or year. In order for your garment to live a long life, there are several things you can do yourself to care for it in the right way.

Wash less
Air rather than washing often. After a day of use, you can turn your garment inside out and hang it on a hanger and air it outside. Give the garment a chance to freshen up before you hang it back in the closet.

Feel free to use a petticoat, tank top or a thin T-shirt under your clothes, so your shirt or dress stays fresh longer. If your clothes have attracted a bad smell, you can put them over a warm element to evaporate the smell. A few heavy puffs with a steam iron or steamer can also do the trick against mild odors in the armpit of a dress or cotton sweater.

Wash correctly:

You almost never need to wash wool sweaters, it is usually enough to air them outside when it is below zero, cold or damp. If, after all, you want to wash your wool garment, you must be careful to use a detergent suitable for wool so that the material retains its fine luster and all the other good properties that wool has. Then let the garment dry flat on a terry towel.

We like to use viscose in our clothes, both in knitwear and woven garments. One of the advantages of knitwear in viscose is that they are very easy to care for. When you have washed the garment, hang it on a hanger, preferably with rounded ends, so you usually don't need to iron the garment at all. Woven viscose is a bit more delicate. Do not pull the fabric when it is wet, as it is more fragile. Instead, let the garment dry by hanging it on a hanger. If the fabric shrinks, lightly iron it to its original size.

Care for the garment
If your garment stretches, for example at the elbows, you can get the shape back by puffing steam or steaming and gently flattening it on an ironing board. Even a high-quality wool garment can get pimples. It is protruding yarn fibers that feel together. If the garment is made of pure natural material, the bumps are easy to remove and the excess will disappear over time. If the garment has a synthetic admixture, the studs sit harder and cannot be removed as easily. With a wool comb you can gently remove the pimples. You put the garment on a hard surface and go over it with the comb under the armholes, on the sides of the torso and in the cuffs and the sweater will be like new.

Repair on time
In the end, our favorite garments break, for example an elbow can be torn open or you get a tear in the fabric. Most of the time there is a rescue for every hole. Check your garment from time to time and if you discover a hole, you should of course fix the hole at once so that the edge does not scratch up unnecessarily.

Patterned garments
If the garment is patterned, holes can often be repaired with sewing thread on the back without showing too much on the front. Find thread that matches the colors of the garment. Sew frayed or broken thread ends to the back and try to sew the hole together with stitches that are not visible on the front. Our sweaters often have extra thread and a button in the pocket on the paper label.

Wool garments
If the sweater is made of wool, you can try to weave the threads together on the back. Use warm water and soap or shampoo and rub the strands together on the back. Finish by attaching with wire so it doesn't scratch up.

Hole on elbow
Has your shirt got a hole in the elbow? Then we can advise you that there are oval patches in the haberdashery store that are for repairing this type of wear. The patches have pre-punched holes that make them easy to attach with a couple of stitches. The result is neat and gives your sweater a genuine look.

The sashiko method
There is a traditional Japanese cooking tradition called Sashiko. There you put a piece of fabric on the back of a hole and use highly visible stitches on the front, which makes the repair fully visible but also a work of art. Search "Sashiko" online, we promise you will be inspired!

Check your clothes from time to time and they will last longer. Comb out pimples with a wool comb and air your favorites on a hanger outside in the fresh air.
