Best Practices for Washing Suri

Suri is naturally odor resistant and stain resistant.  Additionally, Suris lovely drape reduces creasing.  As such, the frequency of washing is reduced, saving you time and money on water and energy bills! 

When you do wash your Suri items:

  • Hand wash or use the delicate cycle on your washing machine.  Be sure to avoid heavy agitation in your washing process to avoid felting.
  • Select the cold water setting on your washing machine.
  • Use a mild detergent – if powdered detergents are used, we recommend pre-dissolving the detergent prior to washing.
  • Steer clear of detergents containing enzymes or bleaches.

Best Practices for Drying Suri

  • Avoid drying your Suri products in a dryer. 
  • To properly dry your Suri items, lay them flat.

Best Practices for Storing Suri

Suri fiber can fall prey to moths, just like other protein fibers such as wool, mohair, angora, etc.  As such, follow these tips to avoid moth damage:

  • Clothes moths like dark, quiet places.  Storing your garments in a closet or drawer that you periodically open and close, will help.
  • Closets, drawers or trunks lined in Cedar are a huge deterent for moths – the natural oils of cedar are powerful enough to kill moth larvae, which are what actually damage your items.
  • Wash garments thoroughly before packing them away for the summer.  Clothes moths are attracted to perspiration and food stains.
  • Moth repellant dry herbs such as rosemary, lavender, or thyme may keep moths from entering your storage area.
