Care of your quilt : Treat your quilt with care and you will get many years use out of it. Always air them out after use. If you are on a multi-day hike spread them out on your tent or over the hammock (TQ’s) UQ’s get more air flow hanging under the hammock but still need airing. So if your taking a lunch break and it’s sunny spread them out.
- Your quilts are made with some of the lightest weight fabrics available so special care is required to prevent any damage to them. If you fail to follow these instructions you can damage your quilts severely.
- No washing machines
- Use proper down detergent only (Use less rather than more. It doesn’t take much detergent to do the job)
- Hand wash in a large basin or tub with warm water. Gently push the air out of the quilt in the water and knead the quilt allowing the water to saturate the down. Then a minimal amount of kneading, pushing the water through the material. Drain the tub and knead out the water. Do no wring or whip the quilt around. This can damage the quilt. Fill the tub with fresh water and repeat to flush the detergent out. Repeat until the water is clear and not cloudy.
- Do not move the quilt around while saturated with water. It’s too heavy and the internal baffles can be easily damaged this way. You can use towels to aid in the moisture removal.
- Never hang a wet/soaked down item on a line. Lay it on a drying rack so it’s supported while heavy. Drying outside in dry air with air movement works great.
- Once the quilt is fairly dry you can move it to the dryer with tennis balls. Only use Fluff / No Heat setting. Minimal heat can cause hot spots in your dryer and melt the fabric. NO HEAT. The tennis balls will help break up the clumps of down. It may take 3-4 hours to dry a quilt.
- Once the quilt is dry you will need to shift down around with gentle hand pushes.
- Do not Dry Clean.
- Store loose in a large breathable bag. Do not store in the stuff sack.
- Custom OutdoorINK prints are a premium fabric (cost) and add more to the cost of the quilt. This applies to the Flecktarn and Fallen Leaves quilt series.
- If you want a OutdoorInk print on both the inner and outer contact me.
- Custom product : 2 week approx lead time (not including shipping time)
