Washing Care and Instructions
A careful wash routine will lengthen the life of your knits! We recommend washing these fabrics with phosphate-free detergent in cool water on a gentle or delicate cycle. We also suggest washing before use, as cotton lycra will have some shrinkage. I often wash my knits inside out.
We recommend use of a colour catcher for minimizing colour bleeding during the first wash.
Cotton is a natural fiber, and as such, will not hold dye over time as well as a synthetic fiber will. Fading as a result of cleaning is typical for these fabrics. This is more noticeable on darker shades. In addition, front loading washers contribute to colour loss due to the increased tumbling action during cleaning. Fading can be minimized through use of cool wash settings and gentle wash cycles. Please wash only like colours together.
Tumble dry on a low temperature or permanent press setting and remove promptly.
