This dreamy dark green robe also comes in a ‘Stripe’ colourway.
The central tie on the robe can be done any way you like. This is ideal if dexterity wise it is easier for you to do a knot than a bow. There are some loops which the fabric tie threads through. If easier you can permanently leave the tie threaded through the loops or Grace [our co-founder] would just put the tie around the robe in the position, she likes, and not worry about threading it through the loops.
The cotton is soft to the touch, so it poses no obvious sensory risks or aversions. General sleep suggests that best fabric care is a cold hand wash and line dry, using a gentle soap to wash. If this process is logistically difficult for you to manage, you can ask the team what their recommendations are for alternative processes.
The only thing to consider is the length of the robe. It is long if you’re sitting, as our quick facts indicate, this would be the case with all full-length robes, so we’d advise utilising a tailor if you wanted the robe shorter and more manageable at the hem. However, it is not too wide of a body on the robe so when tied shouldn’t interfere with wheels/apparatuses if you use a mobility aid.
The sleeves are roomy and full length. You might like to roll the sleeve up if it comes onto your hand, just to make moving around easier if you rely on your hands to use a mobility aid or to lean on things. The sleeves shouldn’t dirty on wheels/edges of your aid, because I’d imagine this robe would be mostly worn inside (even though General sleep blurs the lines between sleep and daywear, but hey, it’s your choice if you want to wear this out, all power to you – sleepwear all day!)
