1. Turn the Garment Inside Out

This step is vital when washing any fleecesherpaacrylic sweater, or soft sweater material. It ensures the textures don't wear against the hardware of the machinery and will keep your garments feeling new and unworn. 
2. Pair With Like Colors

One of the top questions we get is how to wash a sweater or fleece - Whatever the material or blend of the fabric, the best way to ensure your garment keeps its true coloration is by washing it with like-colored garments with mild laundry detergent. You can practically hear your mom's voice... it only takes one red sock to ruin a whole load of laundry! Pairing with like colors can also help you organize your laundry load, which will save you time in the long run!

Washing your garments with cold water serves two purposes - it holds the colors of your garment in and it minimizes shrinking. For any garment, pre-shrunk or not, cold water ensures the textures don't wear against the hardware of the machinery and will keep your garments feeling new and unworn.
