  • Measure your child beforehand, using the measuring chart below
  • Allow for growth - when you're buying shirts, make sure you can fit two fingers inside the fastened collar
  • Buy a minimum of 3 Sweatshirts Primary School (1 wearing, 1 clean and 1 in the wash  )
  • Buy 3 - 5 blouses or shirts, depending on how often you do the washing during the week
  • Order embroidered name tapes well in advance, so you'll have time to sew them on before the beginning of term
  • Please don't leave things till the last minute we may run out.

  • Ask for advice. Our expert staff will be happy to talk to you about a child's individual needs

Garment Care

Please always follow the manufacturer's washing instructions on the garment label.

 

  •          We recommend washing garments inside out.
  •          All of our garments are easy care and need little if any ironing.
  •          If ironing is required please ensure the temperature is set correctly as this and tumble drying are the main reasons that garments are returned.

 

Allowing garments to dry naturally is always best and tumble drying should only be done strictly following the temperature guideline on the garment care label on LOW HEAT

 

Pleated garments should never be tumble dried.

 

The use of fabric conditioner should be avoided as this can interfere with the easy care coating on some garments and can weaken fabrics contributing to pilling and miss-shaping.

 

Wash at the correct temperature as given on the care label

 

Pilling on garments

Having talked to our manufacturers and suppliers, we have come to the conclusion that it is almost impossible to guarantee a pill free garment. All fabrics pill to some extent, with the weaker fibres the pills fall off, but with stronger fibres the pill remains attached to the fabric.

 

Pilling occurs due to friction when wearing or washing of the garment, when groups of fibres on the surface of the fabric become tangled together in a tiny ball – a pill. To help prevent pilling, we recommend that you should wash the garment inside out, avoid the use of fabric conditioner and line dry them if possible. Always follow the washing instructions that will be available on the garment label. If removed they do not return.
