WHAT TYPE OF YARN IS USED?
Most of my items are made from cotton yarn but I do have pieces made from acrylic, silk and wool. My goal within the next year is to only use sustainable yarns -cotton, silk, wool & recycled yarns- for all of my clothing and accessories. You can find what type of yarn your item is made from by the tag when you shop, the website or just by asking me!
HOW DO I WASH/DRY MY ITEMS?
Washing and drying will depend on the yarn, but as a general rule of thumb you should hand-wash and lay out to dry. A chart will be below with instructions for each yarn type.
HOW DO YOU PRICE YOUR ITEMS?
Most of my pieces, especially my clothing items, take me days and sometimes weeks to create. My prices will always reflect the amount of time that I have spent plus the yarn amount.
Cotton can be washed in the washing machine on a gentle cycle using either cold or warm water. Lay flat to dry. This yarn will get softer the more you wash it.
Acrylic can be washed with like colors. You can also run this yarn through the dryer but it must be on lower heat. Using higher heat can cause unwanted wrinkles.
Wool items should be hand-washed in cold water and dried flat. Using a machine or warm water could result in felting or shrinking.
Put your silk yarn clothing in luke warm water and soak for 3 to 5 minutes. If your silk yarn clothing is dark-colored or printed do not soak it and wash it quickly in cold water; Move the silk yarn clothing from side to side, do not wring or twist it; Silk yarn clothing is very delicate so handle it with great care.
Let Alpaca yarn soak in cold or lukewarm water and use a mild detergent, or baby shampoo, or conditioner. Rinse under running cold or lukewarm water then lay it drying flat between two towels. Do not to wring, rub or twist.
Machine wash polyester using the permanent press cycle and warm water wash. Dry polyester on low heat setting in your dryer or lay flat to dry.
