Product Care

Your wrap will be shipped in loom state. It is absolutely necessary to wash and iron your wrap before using it. If you wrap with it before washing, even just briefly, you can cause thread shifting which will lead to weak spots in the cloth. The fabric needs to be washed in hot water and given a hard press to set the weave before it can bear any weight.

For the best results, after the first wash/hard press/hang dry, wash your wrap again on cool/delicate and tumble dry on low heat. While the first hang dry can leave your wrap a bit stiff, this second wash and tumble will really soften up your wrap and give that lovely 'bloom' as the fibers expand. Just be careful not to over-dry your wrap since that can make the fibers brittle, so make sure to take it out as soon as it's dry. You can also dry on low heat until just slightly damp and then finish it up with a no-heat tumble if your dryer has that option.
