How should I care for Pistol Lake garments?

Everything we make is pre-shrunk by garment washing/dyeing. You don't need to worry about your shirts shrinking up on you after washing. We recommend washing cool and drying on low heat. Air drying is best (but not always practical), as heat deteriorates all fabrics over time. Here are some specific recommendations for each of our fabrics:

Eclon and Eudae- Lightweight and Midweight

Caring for your Eclon hoodie and Eudae shirts is easy. We recommend machine washing normally in cool water, and air drying if possible. One the of the best things about your Eclon and Eudae tops is that they'll air dry very quickly- no need to wait around for the dryer to finish and perfect for hand washing while traveling. If you need to tumble dry, do it on low as heat deteriorates all fabrics over time. You won't need to worry about shrinkage on your Eclon and Eudae shirts either.

Organic Cotton Jersey

Our organic cotton shirts are all pre-shrunk by garment washing/dyeing. You don't need to worry about your shirts shrinking up on you after washing. We recommend washing cool and drying on low heat. Air drying is best (but not always practical), as heat deteriorates all fabrics over time.

Cotton French Terry

We pre-shrink our French terry garments by garment washing/dyeing. That said, you might see a little shrinkage in the length (~1” in the body and sleeves), with our French Terry styles if you put them in the dryer. If you want to avoid any shrinkage with your French Terry, we recommend washing cold and air drying.
