          Wash and Care Instructions:
          • We suggest washing all custom fabrics on cold, tumble dry low or hang to dry, and with your usual detergent choice.  Do not leave wet custom fabric to sit as this may result in the ink bleeding onto other items.
          • Please make sure to wash anything made with rayon or derived from rayon, such as bamboo on delicate in cold and hang to dry or tumble dry with no heat.
          • Do NOT dry Sherpa under any circumstance. This must be washed on the coldest setting and laid flat to dry. If it does get any heat it will cause the fibres to shrink. If this occurs washing in a vinegar solution may help loosen those fibres, so they can return to its original structure and form.
