Looking after your new Icebreaker couldn’t be easier –
just throw it in the washing machine (unless it’s an Outerwear jacket or Black Sheep Knitwear) and line dry. For specific advice on caring for your garment, please check its care label.

 


Additional Care Instructions:

Icebreaker garments are designed to be easy for you to care for. We recommend that you wash your Icebreaker garments on a normal warm or cool machine wash cycle with regular powder or liquid detergent, not wool detergent. Don’t use fabric softener or bleach. Separate lights and darks as usual. Also, do not expose any Icebreaker garment to heat and do not tumble dry. Line dry or lie flat in the shade.

NOTE: After your first 2-3 uses, we recommend that you wash the garment separately to diminish the appearance of any short fibers from the fabric.

Complete instructions for best results:
  • Wash like colors together (e.g separate lights and darks)
  • Wash prints inside out
  • Close all zippers
  • Use warm or cool machine wash on a normal cycle (avoid a hot wash, this contributes to shrinkage)
  • Use regular detergent, not wool detergent
  • Do not use bleach or fabric softener under any circumstances (your Icebreaker couldn’t be any softer)
  • Wash occasionally with denim (e.g. jeans with the zipper closed) or other coarse fabrics to remove any loose fibers.
  • Do not iron prints or labels
  • Line dry garments – do not tumble dry (except socks, see below)

For Icebreaker Coastal, Pureplus Jackets & Black Sheep Knitwear:
  • Dry clean only

For Icebreaker Socks:
  • Only socks: Tumble dry on a low heat, inside out
