Washing instructions: Use warm water, and a mild soap (like Eucalan woolwash or mild shampoo) and soak the item. Rinse in the same temperature water. Never shock the fibers by rinsing in cold water or throwing it in a dryer. That is of course, unless you are looking to produce a felted item. Instead be gentle. Roll the item up in a towel and squeeze out the excess water. Lay flat to dry.
