Care

Caring for your Collective Sol Towels, Hammocks, Rugs and Throws will ensure they stay comfy, soft and colourful for years to come.  Here are the best ways to keep your items looking like-new.

Towels, Throw Rugs & Blankets

Before use
We recommend washing your towel, throw rug or blanket before use.  Turkish Cotton is a natural fiber and new towels can shed loose fibers, we recommend washing separately from the rest of your laundry.  

For best care results, please hand wash your towel, throw rug or blanket separately.

If you choose to machine wash, please wash on a gentle cycle in cold to warm water at a maximum of 30°C using a mild gentle laundry detergent or wool wash – but use a little less detergent than suggested.

With both hand and machine washing, we recommend using a non-chlorine detergent.  This keeps the towel fibers from becoming hard and scratchy and it also protects your Turkish towel, throw rug or blanket from losing color.

If your towel, blanket or throw rug is not dirty you can simply rinse in water without detergent, hang it on the line and it’ll be dry in no time.

Softness & Absorbency
Do not use Fabric softeners, as they leave residue on the cotton that will reduce the absorbency of your towel.

Excess detergent can leave residue which affects your towels, blankets or rugs’ softness and absorbency.  To remove residue and restore your product to its maximum softness, simply add a cup of white vinegar to the rinse cycle occasionally.

Drying
We recommend air drying your towel, blankets and throw rugs for best results.  Tumble drying is not recommended, as the heat can damage the integrity of the cotton.

Tassels
Our tassels are hand knotted and with use, can begin to unravel.  These can easily be re-tied.  To do so, make two sections and twist each section clockwise till fully twisted.  Take each section and wrap around each other in an anti-clockwise direction till fully twisted around each other.  Finish by tying a knot at the end of the tassel.

Hammocks

A shady spot is best for hanging your hammock. The less direct sunlight, the longer the life of both the rope and the varnish - not to mention the less sunburn you'll experience when you nod off in your hammock at midday! During winter months and other lengthy stretches when you're not using the hammock, store it in a dry place away from where mice or bugs can get to it. Periodically check the hanging hardware as it bears the brunt of the stress put on a hammock, so replace any parts that no longer seem sturdy.

As our hammocks have non-removable spreader bars, machine-washing your hammock is unfortunately not an option; these hammocks require hand washing.  We suggest the easiest way to wash your hammock is to lay it flat on a clean surface that can get wet such as a deck, outdoor table or concrete surface.  To wash, simply fill a bucket with soapy warm water and spread the hammock.  Soak it thoroughly with a garden hose, then pour on some soapy water and scrub away with a soft bristled brush, with the direction of the cotton weave. Be sure to rinse everything thoroughly before allowing the hammock to dry. 

Caring for the wood
Over time the finish will start to dull and wear off from normal outdoor weathering. To ensure maximum life from your hammock, refinish the wood once you notice this happening. Taking the hammock apart is not recommended; leave everything tied together and just work carefully around the rope.
