HOW To LOOK After ME
I am dyed with natural dyes. I have been mordanted with alum to provide better light and colourfastness. I recommend hand washing in a ph neutral wool wash such as Martha Gardeners Woolwash. Natural dye can be ph sensitive so changes in ph can change the colour. Cold to tepid water and minimal agitation is best. Lay me flat in the shade to dry and store out of direct sunlight. Some excess dyestuff may be present in first washes.
