Care instructions: 

These pieces have been created with extra care and unrushed time; we recommend the same level of attention to maintain its integrity and maximize longevity. For best results:

~ Turn garment inside out and do not soak
~ Machine wash cold or hand wash
~ Wash separately or with like colors
~ Once washed, remove from the machine and give each item a light shake off
~ Hang in the shade or tumble dry low, separately
~ Avoid hanging in direct sunlight or laying flat to dry
~ Use a mild, eco-friendly soap that is as pH neutral as possible (chemical-based detergents may cause color change)

Handle your naturally dyed goods with extra love and care. If you get a stain, run under cold water and, with your hands, gently encourage the stain to loosen from the fibers. Soak the spot with 1-2 tsp of eco-friendly dish soap and cold water for an hour or two, then machine wash cold.

'Dyeing is an extremely dedicated and physical process. When you're creating a dye from scratch it strengthens your relationship with the fibers you wear.'
