Viscose Care Guide
Viscose is a biodegradable material that can be produced from a variety of plants such as soy, bamboo and wood pulp.
Viscose was discovered by British chemists, and was the first manufactured fibre to be produced in large quantities. It was initially marketed as a more affordable and accessible alternative to silk.
Viscose fibres and yarns are usually woven or knitted into smooth and soft fabric. This makes them ideal for hot, humid climates. At TOAST, we like viscose for its drapiness and movement, and for its ability to carry intricate prints and rich colour.
How to wash
We recommend that viscose is washed by hand, as it is prone to shrinking. Some viscose is dry clean only, as the twisting that occurs in the washing machine can cause damage to the fibres.
When washing by hand, use cool water, or water no warmer than 20 degrees.
How to dry & store
Line dry your viscose and reshape it whilst still damp, and avoid tumble drying. Allow to air dry flat or on a padded hanger.
Be careful not to wring or twist your viscose. You can easily iron back to shape whilst damp, as viscose grows with steam.
Cotton bags that allow airflow are ideal for storing viscose clothing.
