How to look after your Härkila products

Cotton

Cotton is hardwearing and easy to care for.

To preserve the colour of a cotton shirt, it should be washed inside out or placed in a pillowcase in the washing machine. You should ensure that all buttons are fastened to help the shirt keep its shape.

For best results, iron the shirt while it is still damp. If the shirt is dry when you come to iron it, it is a good idea to spray it with water or use a steam iron.

Always follow the instructions on the washing label.

Fleeces

Fleece garments should be washed inside out. This extends the life of the garment considerably.

Wash at 30-40°C and spin gently.

For the best result, fleece garments should be air-dried. Avoid tumble-drying or use the lowest possible temperature.

Fleece garments should never be ironed, steam-cleaned, pressed or dry-cleaned since this may melt the material. Avoid using bleach and fabric softeners.

Always follow the instructions on the washing label.

Leather

Leather is a natural material. It is strong, water-repellent, soft and comfortable. Regular care guarantees a long life.

If leather clothing gets wet, it should be air-dried at room temperature. If the leather is dirty, it can be wiped with a damp cloth before it is hung up to dry.

Treat your leather garments with one of our Härkila Leather Care products after drying or as needed.

Härkila clothing with leather reinforcements must not be tumble-dried. The leather reinforcements should be treated with one of our Härkila Leather Care products.

Always follow the instructions on the washing label.

Wool

Wool is a natural material with many unique qualities. Colour and shape are best preserved by following these few recommendations.

Wash in cold water or use the wool programme on the washing machine. Never use biological detergents.

A good alternative to washing is to air the woollen garment, since wool is naturally self-cleaning.

Always follow the instructions on the washing label.

GORE-TEX®

Härkila garments with a waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® membrane can be washed at 40°C with a gentle spin.

Close all zips and do up all straps before washing, and avoid powder detergents, fabric softeners, stain removers and whitening products, since these impair the functionality and performance of the membrane.

Härkila garments with GORE-TEX® membranes must be air-dried or tumble-dried at low temperature. Once the outer shell is dry, the garment can be tumble-dried for a further 20 minutes to preserve the water-repellent effect (DWR coating).

Footwear

Clean footwear with lukewarm water and a brush.

Footwear should be air-dried at room temperature and must always dry standing upright. Alternatively, use a boot drier. Never dry footwear with direct heat such as sunlight, a radiator or a stove.

Härkila Leather Care products nourish the leather and keep it soft and comfortable. The best results are achieved by applying when the footwear is almost dry. The pores of the leather will then be open and the care product can penetrate deeper into the leather.

Härkila rubber boots are handmade from natural rubber. We recommend regular use of Härkila Rubber Care, which cleans, prevents the rubber cracking and protects against UV damage.

All Härkila rubber boots are treated to prevent drying out. This means that new boots may sometimes feel greasy and appear shiny. This is a normal characteristic of high-quality rubber and is a natural, harmless process. The boots' shiny appearance can be easily removed using a dry cloth.
