Washing instructions: Machine wash at 40 degrees. Always close zippers before machine washing. It is preferable to use down detergent (soap based) or a small amount – approx. 1/3 dose – of a mild liquid detergent. Do not use fabric softener. Run 3 to 5 extra rinse cycles after washing. For hand washing we recommend using a bathtub and many rinses. It is preferable to spin dry the product before tumble drying. Tumble dry on low heat setting together with tennis balls until the sleeping bag is completely dry; this may take several hours. Remove any lumps of down and fluff up the down by hand during and/or after tumble drying. Let the product air dry one or two days after tumble drying. If professionally dry-cleaned, make sure ‘water-wash’ is used (solvent-based dry-cleaning will harm the down) and that the sleeping bag is thoroughly dried after wash.
Miscellaneous: Use sleeping bag sheets and a sleeping bag cover to protect the product from dirt. Feed the sleeping bag into the compression bag instead of rolling it. In order to keep the insulating qualities of your down sleeping bag in the best possible condition, it is better to air the product instead of washing it too often as the natural oils of the down (which contributes to lofting and natural water repelling capacity) gradually disappear with washing. When the sleeping bag is not used and for long-term storage, it is preferable to store it in its large storage bag or by hanging – not in a compression bag. If the down is compressed for a long while its insulating qualities will be impaired. Make sure the sleeping bag is thoroughly dry before storage to avoid the risk of mould.
