Product Care

We believe in creating products you’ll love and enjoy forever. To ensure you get the most out of your Urban Aran products, we’d like to gently encourage you to follow the care guidelines for the items you take home.

We recommend using phosphate-free liquid detergents, avoid bleach and peroxide as they can shorten the lifespan of the natural fibres.

100% Irish Linen

Our 100% Irish linen is a strong and durable fabric and because it is a natural fibre, it will keep you warm in winter and cool in summer. The more you wash linen the softer it will become. We recommend you wash linen at cooler temperatures at 30˚. We recommend drying naturally on a clothes line or a clothes horse. For best results use a good steam iron on linen.

30% cashmere 70% fine merino

Our Italian cashmere blend 30% is made to the highest standard. We recommend that you wash your cashmere by hand with a gentle non bio detergent. Cashmere loves being washed and will get softer the more you do so. Always squeeze water by pressing rather than ringing out to avoid stretching. Dry flat naturally.

100% cotton

Knitted cotton is a soft skin friendly breathable fibre. During the summer cotton is ideal as it removes heat from the body by absorbing moisture. Cotton is strong and durable, making it perfect for machine washing, and the fibres do not pill. Recommended at a 30˚ wash cycle.

100% Alpaca 

Alpaca wool is both lighter and warmer than sheep wool due to it being hollow. Sturdier than cashmere and lighter than sheep’s wool, alpaca produces warm, silky, durable and feather-light garments. Recommended at a 30˚ wash cycle.

Care for commercial wear of Urban Aran

Urban Aran is proud to work with leading luxury hotels and private clients providing superior quality sustainable options where possible. Partners require a commercial laundry facility suitable for handling 100% cotton and natural yarn products. We recommend avoiding machines suitable for synthetic materials. Ensure the drum in your machine is on a wool setting so there is little turning and the fibres are not agitated and do not lock together. Dryers with unregulated temperatures should not be used.

Use bleach-free products on stains.

Always follow instructions on the care label.
