Fabrics and Care

 

fabrics and care

Styles are cut from either cotton lycra, polyamide or cotton voile.

Cotton-Lycra

This fabric is used on garments to offer a choice for the wearer who prefers a cotton-based product, with the advantage of Lycra/spandex (8%) to retain the shape of the garment during your practice and after washing.

Polyamide

These fabrics are all moisture wicking; they pull moisture away from your skin, spreading it evenly throughout the fabric so it evaporates faster, helping the fabric to dry quickly. This means you stay cooler during your run or yoga class, and warmer afterwards as your clothing starts to dry the minute you cross the finish line or lie down in Savasana. It also means that you don’t have unsightly sweaty-wetty lines on your garments.

Cotton voile

Used on floaty garments like the Fez and the Andy pants.

Care Instructions

yoga-shmoga makes athletic clothing that we expect you to wear hard and wash hard.

General Care

  • Machine wash cold, no fabric fibre enjoys hot water
  • Do not use fabric softener as this inhibits the wicking capabilities in technical fabrics.
  • All garments have been pre-shrunk (they may shrink a maximum of 2% further)

Other Care Tips

  • We know that if you wash in cold  water and hang to dry, the Lycra will last longer.
  • We have found that the quicker you pop your sweaty clothes in the wash, the less chance you have of ruining the fibre by lengthy exposure to the toxins we sweat out in practice.
