Is that a fleece in one of the pictures?
yes, and knowing Hiroki, it's probably an Alpaca blend fleece. texture looks similar to the new deckhand jacket lining.

followed the wash instructions for the mud dyed hoodie. color is suppose to bleed alot for a while?
got a stain on the right arm of one of my mud dyed hoodies, started fading a bit when i spot cleaned it. something from my kid. no luck. just going to keep wearing it anyway, chalk it up the character, and let it age. ive just been washing them on cold and hang drying with all the others.

oh god, no, don't ever use those stain bars, they rely on abrasion and that can lead to the kind of discoloring you're experiencing. I use laundress detergent and Tangent's organic stain remover using Sharp's ultrasonic cleaner. Most natural dyed garments are going to discolor going through regular abrasion based washing. also the ph of your cleaner may discolor some natural dyes like cochineal.

well i did and it wasnt really much abrasion, more of that the soap didnt get the stain out in the first place than the soap creating the stain. youre opinion is cool and all but im not going to be more careful than throwing these shits in a washing machine on cold, with a good soap (use laundress too, but enh looking for a different one) and air drying

theyre beautiful anyway let em go let em wear
