Caring for Your Handwovens
High quality handwovens, properly cared for, should last a lifetime or more. I recommend washing sparingly. When you must, hand or machine wash gently, cool & with a mild soap. DO NOT PUT IN DRYER. Hang or lay flat to dry. Ironing is fine, just be sure to have it on cooler settings if your product contains metallic or nylon.
Enemies of your handwovens are Velcro & potentially earrings & other jewelry. If a thread gets caught, don’t freak! It’s just a pull & can usually be easily corrected by gently tugging the cowl from two ends several inches to either side of the pull.
If you’re storing for a long period adding a few sprigs of a fragrant herb or drops of essential oil will keep them fresh & any critters away. Lavender, eucalyptus & cedar are some of my favorites.
If you have any questions or concerns please reach out. I hope you enjoy your one of a kind piece for years to come!
