Natural dyes fade beautifully with time and may run a bit when washed but will retain their vibrancy with proper care. We recommend hand washing in cold water with a drop of pH neutral detergent and laying flat to dry away from direct sunlight.
Why pH neutral detergent?
Most commercial, even all natural detergents, are acidic or alkaline solutions that could alter naturally dyed colors. For example, we use citric acid or lime juice as a modifier to dye bright reds with cochineal. An acidic (or alkaline) detergent can have a similar result, breaking down dyes and changing colors even in the first wash.
