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.
