+Washing

  • All Ground Effect clothing enjoys a warm 40ºC machine wash. Try to avoid cold-water detergents and those with bleach, 'oxygen whitener' or fabric softener.
    • The cold-water varieties have little enzymes that are super-charged to brave the cold but can damage technical fabrics and cause skin irritation. 
    • Bleach rots natural fibres like merino, strips the dye, attacks laminates of waterproof fabrics and can also cause skin irritation.
    • Sodium Percarbonate (the main ingredient in oxygen whitener) can make colours run.
    • Fabric softener and stuff containing it like wool wash destroys the water repellent finish on waterproof and water resistant fabrics, and can cause colours to run. 
  • As a rule of thumb, a product that is easy on the planet is also easy on your body. Select a mild plant-based soap like EcoverEcostoreEarthwise or Aware.
  • Hand washing is sometimes the only option on tour, but a washing machine rinses more thoroughly and is preferable if you have the choice.
  • Most Ground Effect gear dries super-fast so hanging on the line or drooping over the bedpost is generally the best option. High heat can damage some fabrics so if you do take your threads for a spin, set the device on 'medium' or 'warm' rather than hot. A lap in the dryer is recommended for your rain jacket, after it has dried on the line, as it helps recharge its water repellent finish. 

  • Wash colours separately.

      Merino Arm Warmers

      Fit real nice, don’t slip down and are really warm great for frosty starts. Other bonus is they fold together and stay together just like folded socks. Great choice

      ArmA Warmers WOW

      Purchased these on a whim.... sounded quite good being Merino rather than Polyester. Oh my Goodness... WOW. I wore them whilst doing the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. We got everything... Snow, Sleet, Rain, Wind and Sun over 7 hours. These were Amazing to wear as an additional Arm layer. Still to be worn on my cycle, but will be always added to my gear when doing anything Outdoors from now on.

      Good product.

      Nice and comfortable. Fit well and stay in place. Not too itchy and I am sensitive to wool itch. Reasonably warm and not at all sweaty.

      Awesome arm warmers. The merino wool is soft on the skin and wicks away sweat. Just starting to cool down here in the Great South West of Victoria and these are great: give them a try you wont be disappointed!
