Caring for your garment
Your ROJO Outerwear garment has been made with love and may well have a laminated or coating applied on the back side of the fabric to allow for easy breathing, moisture wicking and water repellency to repel water and oil-based spills.
To maintain the effectiveness of the WR coating, and waterproof properties, it is recommended that you follow the recommended care instructions for your outerwear which you will find on the inside of each garment on the care instruction tag.
When washing and cleaning please turn your outerwear garment inside out, and remove any fur trims where possible. Check your pockets for tissues, then wash on a gentle cycle, in warm water, with a small amount of detergent, and rinse well.
Dry inside out in the shade.
Do not dry clean, or bleach your outerwear garment.
Tumble dry on medium heat when required to reactivate the DWR coating.
With a little love your Rojo outerwear will bring you pleasure for many years to come.
To maintain the look and soft feel of your ROJO knitted headwear, it is recommended that you follow our care instructions when it comes time to wash your headwear.
Generally we advise that you hand wash your headwear in warm water, with a wool wash. It is never a good idea to use bleach of any sorts around wool products.
After washing, ease the headwear back into shape, and then dry flat in the shade. Do not hand ring your headwear as this will stretch it out of shape. When dry you can use a warm iron to smooth out any irregularities.
Your headwear will now spring back into shape and bring happiness to your head for many years.
FLEECE ACCESSORY HOODS:
To maintain the look and soft feel of your ROJO fleece headwear, it is recommended that you follow our care instructions when it comes time to wash your headwear.
We advise that you hand wash your headwear separately in warm water, and keep it away from bleach.
After washing, line dry in the shade.
We recommend that you do not tumble dry or iron your headwear, but it can be dry cleaned.
Your headwear will now spring back into shape and feel as soft and fluffy as the day you bought it.
Your ROJO midlayer garment is made from anti-pill microfleece, and is designed to wick moisture away from your body and dry quickly. In order to maintain the optimal performance from your microfleece, we recommend that you follow our care instructions.
Your microfleece garment can be machine washed separately in warm water, and then tumble dried on low heat. We advise you to turn it inside out before washing and drying. We do not recommend the use of fabric conditioners, as they will coat the fleece and inhibit moisture wicking. Do not use bleach and do not iron the microfleece. When your garment has dried it will return to its original shape and will feel as fluffy and warm as the first time you put it on.
Your ROJO socks are made from a merino wool and elastane blend, to give you the best balance between warmth and a snug comfortable fit. With a bit of care your socks will keep your toes warm for season after season.
Your socks are machine washable with cool or warm water, and can be tumble dried on low heat. To lengthen the life of your socks, it’s best to turn them inside out before throwing them in the washing machine. We recommend you do not use fabric softeners, because they coat the wool fibres and reduce the fibres' ability to naturally manage moisture and regulate your body temperature. We also recommend you do not use bleach. But, if you must bleach, use a non-chlorine bleach as chlorine will destroy the wool fibres.
We also recommend that you put them on as soon as you get them out of the dryer, when they are still warm!
To maintain the look and performance of your ROJO boots, it is recommended that you follow our care instructions. Your boots are waterproof and breathable, but after use they should be carefully dried. Keep away from direct heat, and never tumble dry, as the heat will damage the sole of the boot.
If your boots become dirty, wipe the affected area clean with a cloth and warm soapy water.
Once clean and dry, put them back on, then go outside and leave your footprints in the snow.
Your ROJO leather gloves are made from the finest goat leather, and with a little bit of care will stay soft and waterproof for many years.
Leather gloves should not be washed, either by hand or in a machine. This will cause the leather will dry out and lose its waterproof properties.
Instead, maintain the life of your leather gloves by carefully drying them after each use, and re-applying a leather balm every 30 days or so.
When drying, they should be kept away from direct heat. Do not tumble dry, and do not leave on top of a radiator, near a fire or close to a heater!
You can find leather treatment products at your nearest ski or outdoor store. We recommend Nikwax leather treatment wax, to keep your leather luxuriously soft and supple.
Your ROJO gloves are made with the same fabrics that we use in our outerwear, and with a little bit of care will retain their waterproofing for many years.
Your gloves should not be washed, either by hand or in a machine. This will damage the waterproof coating and the gloves will lose their water resistance.
Instead, maintain the life of your gloves by carefully drying them after each use away from direct heat. Do not tumble dry, and do not leave on top of a fire or heater, as they will melt, and this will make you sad!
