The majority of our apparel is made from bamboo, an eco-friendly and sustainable fabric. It is ultra soft and has many special properties - it's antibacterial, breathable, moisture-wicking and naturally uv-protected.
It is also a delicate fabric that can be damaged by overheating in the wash or dryer. therefore when machine washing, we recommend washing your Sharper Barker apparel on a cool-to-warm setting and avoid using the dryer. They will maintain their qualities if you lay them flat to dry.
if you do plan to use the dryer, then the cool setting is recommended. Our rain jackets are lined with bamboo but have a nylon water-resistant shell - these should also be washed on a cool setting. Make sure to fully close the velcro or it might get caught on other clothing.
