How to care for your Bare (Cloth):
Wash: Hand wash in cold water. Spot clean with natural soap. Try to minimize agitation and scrubbing the scarf fabric against itself while cleaning to prevent the scarf from further felting. Roll wet fabric in a towel and squeeze to expel water. Hang or lay flat to dry.
Wrinkles: Use the wool setting on your iron. DO NOT put the iron directly on the wool garment, this will permanently alter the fiber to have a sheen. Instead, use a cotton or linen cloth between the iron and the wool product to protect the wool while ironing. Apply pressure and heat from the iron to press out any wrinkles or irregularities.
Repair: If your garment is in need of some love to make it wearable again please contact Bare Cloth. We can help identify a solution and help mend your well-loved garment. : )
