Care instructions

Looking after your knitwear

How to care for your We Are Rushworth garments? Wear it. Wash it. Dry it. Iron it…maybe. Wear it. Lend it. Love it. Pass it on.

Cotton Tees

Wash at 40 degrees maximum. Dry medium heat if tumble drying or line dry. Iron reverse side of the print.

Cashmere/Cashmere mix

Using soap suds or liquid wool detergent use the handwash cycle on your machine to wash your cashmere, and dry flat on a towel. If your machine does not have a handwash/gentle cycle, button up your cashmere inside a pillow case and put it on a cold wash or hand wash in cool water.

Dry flat on a towel after gently pulling the garment back to shape.

All cashmere, no matter how good the quality, is prone to pilling. Use a cashmere comb on hand to deal with bobbles: lay your cashmere flat, gently pass the knitwear comb over the fabric to pick up the pills/bobbles.


Wash frequently avoiding heavy soiling. Wash by squeezing gently in luke warm soap suds. Do not rub or soak. Rinse thoroughly in three changes of water until all the soap is removed. Do not twist or wring by hand. Pull into shape and dry flat in a warm airy atmosphere away from direct heat.

Merino Wool

For best results hand wash gently. Place garment in a warm basin of water with a liquid wool detergent or pure soap suds to ensure they dissolve at low temperatures and have no added harsh chemicals. Soak for about 3 to 5 mins and knead. Squeeze out excess water avoiding twisting and wringing. Pull into shape and dry flat in a warm atmosphere away from direct heat.

Dry cleaning of wool garments should be done infrequently as harsh chemicals are used during this process and can affect the natural fibres properties over time.
