The performance and breathability will remain guaranteed even after frequent washing. Unlike porous membranes, the Sympatex membrane will not get damaged or lose its waterproofness due to detergent residue.
- Put your mono suit, jacket and bibs in the washer, just as you would any other clothing.
- Use regular laundry soap or detergent or a specialty soap (we recommend Nikwax Tech Wash) to clean your gear.
- Dry your gear in the dryer! Just make sure to use the tumble dry low setting.
- Spray on a DWR (such as Nikwax TX.Direct) after the dry cycle is complete to ensure the water beads off like the first time you wore your gear.
Our Merino Wool base layers perform just as magnificently in the washer and dryer as they do in the elements!
First, it is important to note that merino wool is self-cleaning, so you have the option of letting it hang overnight.
