Care & Handling
Mini Merino Garment Care:
For all of our garments, care instructions are set out on the Care Label and a Garment Care Swing Tag is included in each order.
The great thing about wool garments is they don't need a lot of washing as wool is naturally odour and stain resistant.
Always turn this Merino garment inside out to wash and dry.
Machine wash luke warm gentle wool cycle. 40 degree C maximum.
Use approved mild Wool detergent.
Wash dark colours separately
DO NOT bleach or spot clean (this includes NapiSan) - most laundry powders contain whiteners which act like bleach, even 'eco-whiteners' may still bleach your garment creating bleach spots and holes!
If the garment is stained, use a stain soap and rub into the effected area before washing ie Sards Wonder Soap (from your local supermarket).
We recommend you use a delicates wash bag to protect your Mini Merino clothing from other articles of clothing which may cause abrasion (particularly zips and jeans).
Tumble dry on low heat setting or lay the garment flat away from direct sunlight.
Your garment may be dry cleaned.
Ruby Olive Product Care:
Ruby Olive products have been designed and handmade by clever artisans. They are certainly very hardwearing but you still need to look after your new little treasures. You may notice small inconsistencies in colour and shape between styles but we consider this to be part of their unique beauty. It's recommended that you keep your Ruby Olive products clean and dry particularly if wood as water, perfume, hair spray and moisturiser can sometimes cause them to discolour and rub off onto other fabrics. To bring your jewellery back to life you can use a small dab of natural bees wax or polish to buff wood items and a vegetable based oil for resin items.
We use metal components which are nickel free and we support environmentally sustainable wood and shell products.
Our resin products are all hand poured and hand made by specialist artisans making each piece unique. Resin is a beautiful material that is smooth, light and very wearable. Resin is very hard wearing (unless dropped onto a hard surface such as concrete) and is able to be easily polished up to look almost brand new.
We aim to use sustainably sourced raw materials where possible and some of the raw materials we are proud to use in our designs include Coconut Shell, Recycled Floorboards and Recycled Wooden Builders Palettes.
