Care Instruction

Yarn

This is a hand-crafted product and therefore it is possible for there to be shade differences between skeins. It is recommended to alternate the skeins every few rows to avoid striping of colour or shade.  

It is recommended that all yarns be hand washed with a pH neutral detergent in cool water with least agitation. Natural dye can be pH sensitive which means due to the acidity or alkalinity in some normal detergents the yarn colour would be modified or changed.  This is also why you should never rinse naturally dyed yarn or fabric with vinegar, mistakenly believed as a way of fixing colour as this would also bring about a colour change. 

Sometimes there can be a slight bleeding of colour, we rinse the yarn and fabric thoroughly at the studio but sometimes a skein or scarf can slip through.  We recommend your yarn or fabric should be washed individually for the first few washes.  If this does happen it is excess dye and the colour should not be affected.

Blankets

You could spot clean your blanket or throw with a soft cloth and dabbing action.  For a deeper clean dry cleaning is the recommended treatment.  Even if washed by hand the weight of the blanket when hung to dry would distort and stretch the shape.

Scarves

Due to the handcrafted nature of our scarves, variations, small spots and slight uneven colour is normal and expected.

Hand dyed scarves can be hand washed with a pH neutral detergent in cool water (with least agitation if your scarf is wool) we use Soak. Natural dye can be pH sensitive which means due to the acidity or alkalinity in some normal detergents the yarn colour would be modified or changed.  This is also why you should never rinse naturally dyed yarn or fabric with vinegar, mistakenly believed as a way of fixing colour as this would also bring about a colour change. 

Ruanas

You can spot clean as the wool blankets if you have a mishap! Otherwise Dry Cleaning is recommended.
