Care Instructions

To keep your tales of old looking like new...

Most Little Pip products are machine washable, however there are a few that due to their extra special vintage nature or specifically selected yarn content that may need to be hand washed. I keep these pieces to a minimum as we know only too well the rate at which our baby and children's clothing is washed! It is only in the case of garments or accessories where extra special or unique materials were selected for their outstanding beauty and appeal and we couldn't resist the urge to re-love them! These items will be specifically labelled with their own care instructions and this would also be highlighted when listed for sale on the website.

The majority of products, including cashmere are machine washable at 30℃ unless otherwise stated as above. We source pre-loved cashmere that is machine washable for your convenience. we suggest to machine wash with non biological detergent at 30℃ and on the relevant cycle to the heaviness of soiling. Please save water where possible and choose a shorter cycle. Little Pip pre-washes all materials prior to making with non-bio at 30℃ and test washes using the same once they are made, ensuring products reach you beautifully fresh and with confidence in their ability to withstand the test of time.

We do not suggest tumble drying any Little Pip products due to the nature of the vintage fabrics and hand knit yarns. Cashmere should always be air dried. We do not test using a tumble dryer, air drying is best for the longevity of the products and for the environment.

Most Little Pip products can be ironed on the reverse unless the care label specifies otherwise. We suggest to use a low heat setting to avoid damage to vintage fabrics or embroidery. Wool & cashmere products can be ironed on the wool setting/low heat setting on the reverse.

Please always keep Little Pip garments and accessories away from fire and always check the care label if you're unsure how to care for them.
