Care Instructions

  • Can be washed in a gentle cycle in the washer because their tight weaves are water and wrinkle- resistant.
  • They can also be hand-washed or placed on a low heat setting in the dryer.
  • Set a warm iron on the lowest setting to do a quick press.
  • Advisable to dry clean gabardine blends with a high percentage of worsted wool to prevent shrinkage.
