So many of you being worried of whether it's safe to wash Eco Faux Fur items or not I made this video to show how easy it actually is to take care of your woollen slippers and other small Eco Faux Furs items at home.
Oftentimes the woollen items just need to be freshened up and they clean themselves when placed outdoors in the fresh air. However sometimes proper wash is needed and you really don't need to be afraid of it at all. Just carefully follow the recipe above and guaranteed your favourite woollens will never let you down.
Here's what you need:
- 7 - 10 litre basin
- 3 x 5 litres of water
- water thermometer
- 15 millilitres of washing detergent suitable for wool and silk
- absorbent tea towel
- clothes line or clothes horse - you can either hang the slippers to dry on the clothes line or level-dry them on a clothes horse - both outdoors and indoors do the job as long as the environment is dry.
- clothes pegs
The thing to bear in mind when washing wool and especially tufted items is that wool felts if rubbed or twisted or moved in too warm water so avoid those actions and make sure the water temperature is not in any circumstances above 30 degrees Celsius (85 degrees Fahrenheit).
If you have any questions regards to the video please drop me a line to firstname.lastname@example.org. Stain removal instruction video for Eco Faux Fur coats and capes is to follow later in winter.
Especially during this Fashion Revolution week we all are encouraged to ask the brands 'Who made my clothes?'. The answer for Heli MG brand is: I i.e. Heli MG made my - and your - Eco Faux Furs coats, capes and accessories. To prove it below are 2 short videos from my YouTube archives that picture in full the production process of the Monarch Butterfly cape I made for a client in 2014.
When making the material choices I take into consideration the animal friendliness and the carbon footprint both in their production process and in the caring for the garments i.e. Eco Faux Furs that are lifetime companions. The benefit of being my own maker is the greater control over those things that matter to me and to the huge amount of other people sharing the same values.

Please note: due to an upper limb injury the Eco Faux Furs production is on break until the permission to continue is given by my GP.
The season's last Heli MG Face is awarded entrepreneur Soile-Maria Linnemäki who is the founder and owner of the 3-year-old, successful Finnish Fashion Library concept Vaatepuu, running stores in Järvenpää and Turku in Finland.
Vaatepuu is ladies' shared wardrobe consisting of over 1000 fashion & accessories pieces that the registered members can borrow, 2 items for 2 weeks at a time. The membership includes numerous attractive benefits such as the access to a great, all the time renewing selection of Finnish fashion without paying a fortune and panicking with the lack of storage space at home. The weekly browsing & trying-on sessions with the other members are fantastic social events - and being encouraged by the other ladies to wear something that can change one's life in a glance being worn in the right time in the right place, that a regular shopper wouldn't even lay her eyes on, that's really something - How often do we ladies go last-minute-shopping on our own and manage to find nothing!
Soile-Maria is also mother of 6-months-old boy Toivo ('Hope'). Practical wardrobe is so a must and often times she 'picks to impress' from the Vaatepuu selection of 'borrowables'. Last Thursday, when I met her last in Järvenpää, was very spring-alike and her outfit for the morning was the woollen, pure silk-lined Eco Faux Furs Eagle-cape worn over a black jersey dress and seasoned with Kenkäpaja Pihka' s Housemartin inspired ear-rings (pictured) - you probably can guess the secret for her success!
The Heli MG Faces series will continue in September with brand new people. Feel free to drop me a message to email@example.com if you'd like your Heli MG look to be featured."
