NATURAL FABRICS WILL TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOU, ESPECIALLY IF YOU TAKE GOOD CARE OF THEM. BELOW ARE SOME SUGGESTED TIPS FOR TAKING THE BEST CARE OF YOUR FABRIC
- Machine wash cool, gentle with like colors, tumble dry, low heat.
- Use earth-friendly and gentle detergents.
- Do not use bleach or other cleaners with enzymes. Do not use spot spray laundry cleaners.
- Do not scrub and take care not to wash garments with zippers, velcro, or towels with texture as this will cause abrasion and pilling.
- Ironing natural fabrics is a great deal, easier if the fabric is slightly damp. Iron on reverse
- You can lay flat or line dry lighter-weight garments, but do not expose them to direct sunlight as this could cause fading. Tumble-drying heavier-weight garments will help them retain their shape, as line drying can stretch the fiber.
How to Care for Naturally Dyed Fabrics
We often work with natural dye to create specialty pieces, and we encourage specific care of these garments to ensure longer-lasting color. Hand washing is ideal, but if you machine-wash we suggest cold water and a delicate cycle. Use a gentle or all-natural detergent, never with bleach. Tumble dry low. If you line dry, do not place it in direct sun. Avoid storing garments in direct sunlight. It’s always a good idea to wash naturally dyed pieces by themselves first, to ensure no dye runoff.
