Washing Your Handwoven Wrap

Updated: Feb 6, 2019

Let’s talk about washing, so you can care for your handwoven with confidence!

Please know, all wraps come washed and ready to wear.

Keep in mind, your handwoven doesn’t need to be washed that often and spot cleaning between washes is a great idea.

Choose a gentle detergent, that’s free of optical brighteners. I personally use Country Save, but Seventh Generation, Nature Clean, Nellie’s, or Honest Company, are also great options.

Check your wrap label to see the fibre blend.

Easy care fibres, such a cotton, tencel, bamboo, and hemp, can be machine washed on delicate and cold water setting. Do not soak. Use a small amount of detergent. 1 tbsp is enough and 1/2 cup of vinegar in your wash cycle. If your wrap has very saturated colours, you can add some vinegar to the rinse cycle as well to keep the colours where they should be.

When the cycle is complete, immediately hang or lay flat to dry, out of direct sunlight. I hang mine on my curtain rod.

If your wrap contains any silk or wool, you will need to hand wash. Complete this full process and do NOT soak.

Fill a laundry sink or a bathtub with cool water for silk and tepid water for wool.
