Cotton is hardwearing and easy to care for.

In order to preserve the colour of cotton garments, they should be washed inside out. You should ensure that all buttons are done up since this will help shirts to retain their shape.

It is best to iron shirts while the fabric 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 item’s washing instructions. 

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

Wash at 30-40°C and and spin gently.

Fleece garments should be air-dried for the best result. If it is necessary to tumble-dry, 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 item’s washing instructions. 

 

Wool should be washed in cold water or using the washing machine's wool cycle. Never use detergents containing enzymes.

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

Always follow the item’s washing instructions. 

Garments with windproof and waterproof SEETEX® membranes can be washed at 40°C on a gentle spin cycle. 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.

Garments with SEETEX® membranes must be air-dried or tumble-dried at low temperature.

All Seeland 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.

In order to protect the rubber, it shouldn't be allowed to dry out. We recommend using Seeland Rubber Footwear Care regularly. Seeland Rubber Footwear Care cares for the rubber by nourishing, cleaning and protecting it. Nourishing the rubber keeps it soft and flexible. This prevents cracks and UV damage.

Care instructions

Before applying Rubber Care

  • Clean mud and dirt from the rubber boots using lukewarm water and a sponge
  • Let the boots air-dry upright at room temperature. Never dry footwear with direct heat such as sunlight, a radiator or a stove.

Shake the bottle and spray the contents on the boots from a distance of about 20 cm. Dry off excess Rubber Footwear Care after 2-3 minutes. Repeat the process if necessary.

  • Store the rubber boots at room temperature in a dry, airy place
  • Do NOT store
    • On a heated floor
    • Close to an open fire
    • In direct sunlight
    • On a radiator or similar heating appliance
    • Lying down
  • Do not wash the rubber boots in a washing machine
  • Do not dry the rubber boots lying down or under pressure. They must always dry standing upright
  • We do not recommend leaving the zip open during use since this may damage the zip and cause the rubber gusset to crack
  • Do not allow your rubber boots to dry in a non-ventilated space such as a plastic bag or damp room
  • Direct sunlight should be avoided
  • Do not dry the rubber boots near direct heat sources such as open fires, radiators, electric fires or heated floors
  • Do not use soap since this may damage the boots' protective layer
  • Avoid getting fuel/oil, waste liquids, fertilizer and salt water on them. If the boots come into contact with any of these, they should be rinsed with fresh water

 

Care instructions

  • Wash before use
  • Wash inside out
  • Wash similar colours together – separate light and dark colours
  • Machine wash on a normal spin cycle. Avoid washing at higher temperatures than given in the washing instructions on the packaging, since this may damage the socks and/or cause them to shrink
  • Use ordinary detergent
  • Tumble-dry at low heat

In general, it is recommended to follow the washing instructions on the product packaging.

  • Do not let your socks dry in unventilated places – e.g. plastic bags or damp rooms
  • Do not use fabric softener since this coats the fibres and inhibits their natural functionality
  • Do not bleach the socks with a chlorinated product, since chlorine damages the cotton fibres
  • Do not hand wash the socks, since this does not clean the fibres sufficiently and, in the long term, will cause bad odours

  • Do not let your socks dry in unventilated places – e.g. plastic bags or damp rooms
  • Do not dry the socks in direct sunlight
  • Do not use fabric softener since this coats the merino wool fibres and inhibits their natural ability to wick away moisture and regulate body temperature
  • Do not bleach the socks with a chlorinated product, since chlorine damages the cotton fibres
  • Do not hand wash the socks, since this does not clean the fibres sufficiently and, in the long term, will cause bad odours
