Garment care

Please find our best washing -tips and instructions here. What can you do to become more sustainable and care for the environment when it comes to your washing routines? For example, instead of washing your clothes too often hang them out to air. This will keep your clothes fresh and last longer and you will save a lot of water, one of our most precious resources.

Stylish dressing begins with high-quality clothes that are well cared for. Take good care of the clothes in your golf wardrobe, and you’ll enjoy them for even more rounds of golf, or countryside walks. And you’ll reduce your total environmental impact at the same time. Because you won’t need to buy so many garments, and you won’t need to wash them so often. Then, when the time comes to buy new ones, invest in garments that last longer thanks to their style and quality.

Garment care and protecting the environment go together. Here’s some general advice on how to be kind to your clothes as well as the environment:

  • Wash them less often. Less washing = using less water and energy. Consider just airing your clothes, or brushing/wiping off dirt and marks.
  • Wash at a maximum of 40 °C. Use an eco-wash programme at a lower temperature. It uses less energy, and it’s gentler on your clothes.
  • Use the correct dose of an eco-labelled detergent.
  • Avoid fabric softener. That’s for the sake of the environment, because fabric softeners contain substances that are difficult for nature to break down. It also reduces the garment’s moisture-wicking ability. So the garment will take longer to dry.
  • Fasten zips and hook-and-loop closures. This reduces the risk of the garment getting caught and damaged during the wash.
  • Use a laundry wash bag. This protects the garment itself from wear and tear. You also reduce the spread of plastic particles in rivers and the sea, because synthetic garments release microfibres when they are washed. So do nature a favour: use a laundry wash bag, and never rinse it under running water.
  • Avoid tumble dryers and drying cabinets. A simple way to be kind to your clothes – and protect the environment – is to hang them out on the line to dry.

Synthetics and Quick Dry basic garments

Most of our golf and active wear is made of a Quick Dry material. This synthetic fabric is breathable and moisture-wicking, and dries quickly. If your garment isn’t too dirty, try airing it instead. However, if you’ve been perspiring a lot, you need to wash it to prevent white salt stains. It’s important to use a laundry wash bag to reduce the spread of the microfibres that synthetics release. Line drying should be all you need – they are quick-drying, after all!

How to wash your synthetic fabric basics:

  • Use a laundry wash bag
  • Wash at a maximum of 40 °C
  • Don’t use fabric softener
  • Ideally, line dry

Lined synthetic garments

Our lined synthetic garments have two layers with an insulating synthetic lining between them. Often, all it takes is an airing to make them fresh again. If you do wash them, however, it’s important to dry them using heat to reactivate the water-repellent surface. Use a heating cabinet, tumble dryer or iron, but not for too long or at too high a temperature to avoid the garment melting.

How to wash your lined synthetic garments:

  • Use a laundry wash bag
  • Wash at a maximum of 40 °C
  • Don’t use fabric softener
  • Ideally, line dry. Or with gentle warmth

Garments in Micro Light fabric or Softshell

The Softshell garments – also called shell garments – in our outdoor collection have water-repellent properties that make it harder for dirt to penetrate. If the garments are not too dirty, all it usually takes is to air them after use and wipe off any dirt.

How to wash your Softshell or Micro Light garments:

  • Use a laundry wash bag
  • Wash at a maximum of 40 °C
  • Don’t use fabric softener
  • Ideally, line dry

Woollen garments

The great thing about wool is that it’s virtually self-cleaning. You don’t need to wash your woollens very often. The oils in wool provide natural protection against dirt and bacteria. Washing too often only reduces that protection. It’s better to let your woollens air instead. When you do wash your woollens, you shouldn’t hang them up to dry because it will stretch them.

How to wash your woollen garments:

  • Use a laundry wash bag
  • Use a wool program at a maximum of 40 °C
  • Don’t use fabric softener
  • Do not tumble-dry
  • Dry flat on a towel. Do not hang the garment
