Care instructions

  • Each Dinadi product comes with a strand of yarn that can be used for mending if a product were to snag or tear. 
  • Wool naturally repels dirt and requires fewer washes. Air out your product when needed. 
  • Woolen products will naturally pill with use. Cut away by hand or use a de-pilling machine. Compress the fibers after de-pilling by ironing on low. Pilling is not a sign that your product is worn out. 
  • Hand wash only. Add wool detergent to cold water and let your product soak for about 10 minutes without working it. Rinse with clean, cold water and press the water out of the product without twisting or pulling. Lay out flat to dry.
  • Resize when necessary. Woolen products will stretch and conform to your body with use. If your product is
    • Too small - dampen and stretch carefully
    • Too large - hand wash and reshape to desired measurements. Lay flat to dry.

When asked if we would ever have our clothing made overseas, we categorically said no. In the beginning, Jennifer made everything by hand in the back of her shop, loving the contact with clients and refining her skills. Now that the business has grown, we’re proud to say that Jennifer Glasgow clothing is still made right here in Montreal! Our close knit circle of factories are all woman-owned. Chenda, Sina and Miu, with their teams, have produced every stitch for over 10 years. Keeping our production in Canada helps us control the quality of our goods and reduces our carbon footprint.
