Each handmade item is made with love. This means that it requires gentle and loving care.

If you need to wash your handmade garment, please follow this simple guide below.


I recommend hand washing all handmade items, even though the label of some yarns (like cotton) says that they can be washed in the machine. Why? The tension of a hand while making a garment is different than that of the machine. That is why in order to preserve the original form and shape of your garment is better to avoid machine washing.

Tip 2:

Take off any jewelry (rings and bracelets) from your hands. They can accidentally scratch or unravel the garment.

Care Instructions

  • Wash items by hand, separately.
  • Use plenty of water, at a lukewarm temperature.
  • Don’t let the garment soak
  • Use neutral soap, half a dose you would normally use
  • Don’t use bleach or fabric softener
  • Measure the garment before washing to shape it correctly after the wash
  • Spin in the pillowcase or roll in the towel to press out moisture
  • Shape your item respecting original measurements on a thick towel
  • Air dry flat, away from the sun

Following these simple tips will help you to preserve the original softness and look of your item.
