The Kinder Cap and Gown Sets
are made of a 100% woven polyester fabric with a satin sheen. Caps have an elastic panel on both sides; head measurements are not needed.
You can get the majority of the wrinkles out of the gown by putting it in the dryer with a damp towel and tumbling on the lowest heat setting for about 15 minutes. (Don't OVER dry, or it will be full of static!) This will remove most of the wrinkles. If it needs to be ironed, use the lowest heat setting on your iron (usually called "synthetics" or "polyester"). Test a small area first inside a seam to be sure that the iron is not too hot; an iron that is too hot will melt the fabric. We have had best results by ironing from the inside of the gown.
The apparel is 100% woven polyester fabric. Polyester is a completely washable fabric, and the seams are overcast (serged) to help prevent raveling. The gowns will hold up well for re-use if you wash gently (We recommend that you hand wash in cool water and hang to dry) and then store away from light. The caps, however, are NOT washable or dry-cleanable.
Caps are not sized:
The caps have small elastic panels on the sides which allow them to work with almost any head size. We do not require a head measurement, only a gown size. If you have a student with an unusually large head, write a note for us in the checkout area giving us the head measurement so that we can accomodate you!
