World Rugby Shop regularly gets questions about the best way to care for official rugby jerseys and we turned to Canterbury’s Senior Designer Gareth Woosey to explain the best way to care for your British & Irish Lions.

Woosey leads the design team for all Canterbury’s Northern Hemisphere jerseys including the 2017 British & Irish Lions Jersey. Canterbury’s design team worked to make this year’s jersey a ‘remastered classic’ with the style of the 1950s and the technical advances of the 21st century.

“(The care instructions are) detailed on the wash care label,” Woosey explained. “But it is best to wash at 86° F (30° C) with no fabric conditioner as this affects how the performance yarns work. Turn inside out to minimise logo contact with the washing machine unit. You can do a light tumble dry but it’s always best to line dry.”
