Heirloom textiles are made from Silk and/or Wool fibres, often blended and hand woven.
TO WASH OUR TEXTILES:
Our dyes are made from native plants. Although colourfast, for best results:
- Wash by hand in rainwater or filtered drinking water (chemicals in tap water can have a bleaching effect over time).
Use either a small drop of ECOWOOL wash detergent (go to www.ecostore.co.nz to purchase) or a few drops of Eucalyptus oil in your wash basin.
Hang to dry in shade. Press with warm iron.
HAND FELTED PIECES:
- Handwash in lukewarm water with ECOWOOL wash detergent (go to www.ecostore.co.nz to purchase). Delicate machine spin excess water.
Dry flat out of sun. Press with warm iron.
