    • 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 Ecover, Ecostore, Earthwise 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.

The stuff has already arrived at my friends place in Christchurch, I am still on the other side of the globe. Will be there Friday afternoon, cheers

So good I bought 5

My only decision was how many in grey and how many in black. These are great for Melbourne Autumns & winters. Soft, slim fitting and sleeves long enough to stop the chills creeping up the arms.

Cosy Long Black

Can't beat merino tops, and this is a doozy. I work on a layers principle - the colder it is, the more layers I wear. And this fits nicely into the 'a bit nippy for one layer' range. Comfy and cosy, great autumn and spring wear when you get out there.

Long black

Awesome product, sizing good, HOWEVER unless you are an Orangutan the sleeves are very long and a tad annoying.
