Washing and Blocking

June 05, 2016

Our yarns are all dyed in water so you can also wash them in water. We do not recommend dry cleaning any of our yarns.

  1. Place your garment in a bowl of lukewarm water with a small amount of ph neutral soap like Dove Clear or Ivory if washing.
  2. If there is any bleeding add a bit of vinegar.
  3. Make sure your garment is totally wet and let it sit for a few minutes.
  4. You may add a bit of fabric softener to the last rinse.
  5. Squeeze the excess water out, roll in a large towel and press, or spin out in the machine.
  6. Lay it out on a dry towel and block into the shape you want leaving it until completely dry.
  7. If you have used handmade polymer clay buttons you may leave them on.  They should never be dry cleaned.
