To care for your product: Suitable for the washing machine and tumble dryer. Iron med-hot temperature. To remove stubborn creases, spritz the fabric with water and iron. Turn the machine down to 30 degrees for a more environmentally friendly wash. In Europe alone, if every household turned its washing temperature down to 30°C, we could save 12 million tons of CO2 annually.
We also recommend line drying, which reduces energy usage and looks after your textiles for longer. Use a mild detergent, light botanical refresher or simply steam the item you've made in your bathroom after a shower.
This textile has been finished and washed, but we recommend washing the fabric before making any products to avoid unexpected additional shrinkage. Dependent on your machine, detergent and laundering methods, shrinkage can still occur.
