Care:Pickapooh hats can be machine washed at 30 degrees. Reshape and line dry. Do not tumble dry. Best to rinse in fresh water after going to the beach.

Dermatologists recommend covering up as second most important protective measure after staying out of the sun.
 To be protective, clothing needs to cover as much skin as possible and should fit loosely. A long-sleeved shirt and a wide-brimmed hat are far better than a T-shirt with a baseball cap. Stretched and/or wet fabrics may reduce the protective effect of fabrics dramatically.

Like in sunscreen the protective effect of clothing is known as the UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor). The UPF indicates how long - according to one‘s skin type - a person may stay out in full midday sun. See the recommended “Safe Times” table in the images.

Textiles tested according to the Australian standard have only been checked new and dry. Materials reaching an UPF of 40 according to this standard often only make for an UPF of 5 when re-tested according to UV standard 801, the strictest standard currently available.

Only the UV standard 801 tests fabrics under real-life conditions: wet, stretched and after multiple care cycles. The lowest UPF measured is indicated on the “UV protect” label and guarantees this protection level under any conditions.
