Instructions for Care

Hand wash or gentle machine on cold, with gentle detergent or wool wash only, dry flat.

We recommend hand-washing all of our products (no matter what the manufacturer says) with a gentle wash. Eucalan and Soak are two of our favorites. This will extend the life of your yarn and projects!
