It is best to always hand wash hand knitted natural fiber items in cool water with a natual fiber safe laundry soap or natual fiber wash. Let set for recommended time stated on label of detergent. Rinse in the same temperature water, squeeze excess water out gently, then reshape and lay flat to dry. Larger items can be laid on a towel, gently rolled, and can be pressed by hands or feet to expel water. Do not agitate, or vigorously scrub during washing as fibers can felt easily.
