While cotton can generally be machine washed and dried we recommend doing so only with great care in order to prevent bleeding of the vibrant hand-painted hues. Use only cold water and low/no heat or hang dry.
Better yet – handwash cool and hang or lay flat to dry.
Whether hand or machine washing the dyer recommends using only a small amount of mild castile soap (like Dr. Bronner’s) rather than detergent or a no-rinse delicate wash such as soak or eucalan as these can cause the colors to bleed.
