To preserve the softness and longevity of your Something Good Studio blanket, it must be maintained in an appropriate manner, giving preference to delicate washing. It is important to always refer to the indications on the composition and care labels.

BEFORE WASHING

For machine washing, it is recommended to wash alone and not with other items.

​WASHING OF COTTON KNITWEAR

In order to keep the fineness and the length of the fibers of the cotton, the blankets should be machine washed on a gentle cycle at 30° maximum, or cold water is recommended. Do not use fabric softener or bleach, and prefer a gentle spin cycle to avoid twisting or deforming.

​DRYING OF SOFT KNITWEAR

In order to keep their shape and fit, all items should be dried flat on a towel in a shaded area.

Tip: fold a towel over your drying rack indoors and neatly place your blanket on top, leave until dry.

Do not tumble dry. Do not hang dry.

Do not dry in direct sunlight.

IRONING

Iron softly on the reverse side. It is also highly recommended to apply a damp cloth between the iron and the garment to protect the fibers.

OTHER NEEDS OF SOFT COTTON

Over time, it is possible that the knit will make snags or pilling in certain areas of friction. For this, there are small devices specially designed for clothing care at knit. To make up for the snags, small hooks, very easy to use, exist to remesh the threads of the items. To remove pilling, anti-pilling razors are very effective and do not damage the sublime and softness of the items.

Tara’s work explores the simplicity of everyday observations, a combination of memory and place – both real and imagined. Her compositions are populated with patterns, colours and characters influenced from her travels, personal relationships, books and popular culture, brining through a narrative storytelling quality to her work. Her curiosity to play with colours, shapes and forms & how they work with one another in a composition express a cohesive flavour of optimism and vibrance reminiscent of her homeland.
