Let's talk about how to make your cape stay the distance.
Here are the key tips:
1. Do you have one of our washable rain capes?
No? Don't put it in the washing machine. Sponge clean or cold tap only.
Yes? Wash only at 30 degrees on a short cycle with non-bio.
2. Dry away from direct heat and don't pack away wet.
3. Reproof when needed. This depends upon amount of wear - yearly is good practice. Use tinned re-proofing wax for standard waxed cotton rain capes.
Use Nikwax silicone based re-proofing spray for dry wax rain capes.
Why waxed cotton?
The waxed cotton they have chosen is not designed to stay pristine. It is also a sustainable option. Waxed material has been around for centuries as a reliable fabric that can be re-treated and worn again and again for years. Modern fabrics might be lighter, machine washable and look more uniform than standard waxed cotton, but these are difficult to maintain and once they've lost their 'waterproof-ness', they're destined for the bin.
Carn Valley DO NOT want to contribute to plastics in landfill.
Carny Valley waxed cotton capes are meant to be lived in, to travel with you and to tell the story. They will age beautifully and develop a patina.
Washable waxed cotton!
They also sell capes made from British Millerain 'Dry Wax', a washable waxed cotton fabric with a dry feel. This fabric is REVOLUTIONARY! Waxed cotton has never been machine washable - this fabric makes pastel colour rain capes possible and has the added bonus of being super lightweight. The wax preparation is a closely guarded secret, but re-waxing preps are silicone based and vegan.
