Fabric Index & Care Instructions

 

Most of our fabrics are natural, hand dyed, and some are Hand Knitted, and Hand printed (silkscreen). Almost All products have been pre-washed to prevent shrinking. Because of this reason, our products should be washed in cold water, not exceeding 30ºC by hand or soft cycle in a washing machine, and should never be tumbled dry in hot air.

Washing our product in Hot water, and on Heavy setting on the washing machine might damage the natural fibers.

Detergent or fabric softener that contains bleaching agents might cause fading of fabric or print colors.

If you dry your Psylo clothes in direct sunlight, the UV light exposure might also cause fading of fabrics or print colors.

Size Guide

The majority of our garments fit a little snuggly to flatter all average fit body types.

Sizes 1 – 4 are more specific for products that are meant to be tight fitting, and hugging. You will mainly see this in Tops, Dresses, and Leggings.
Sizes SM / ML fits more loosely, which gives more allowance for flexibility. You will mainly see this in Skirts, Kaftans, or Vests. 

Sizes 36 - 48 very specific, for products that are more tailored and / or meant to be very tight fitting.  

Please refer to the 'Psylo Size Chart' below to help you assess which size suits you best. Please make sure, especially when choosing a product with a very specific size, that you are measuring yourself correctly.  

If you need further assistance please contact our Customer Service.

A broad information about the materials we use will also help you get a better idea how the clothes will fit you:

Cotton Lycra
Tencel
Most products are tight fitting, however the material is stretchy, so you have a lot of flexibility to choose between sizes according you your taste – whether you like it tighter, or a bit loose.

CVC Slub Double Knit
Cotton French Terry
CVC Cotton Terry
The fabric is stretchable but not elastic so it gives minimal flexibility in between sizes. It will never be a tight fit (Jacket) and we will use elastic / adjustable straps in the waistbands for extra fitting.

Cotton Canvas
Cotton Twill Stretch
Cotton Twill 16s / 20s
Cotton Linen
There is little to no stretch in the fabric. The cut is more tailored, and the fit is more specific, with almost no flexibility in between sizes.
