CARE INSTRUCTIONS:
If necessary, Mapula Emproidery Project creations may be gently hand washed in cold water. We are advised to avoid the use of detergents. If soap is necessary, try a gentle dish soap or other product intended for delicate textiles. Test on the back or inconspicuous location to be sure it does not affect the dyes. Blot and let air dry. If necessary, iron at lowest (nylon/acrylic) setting on the back-side with a steam iron using an ironing cloth between the embroidery and the iron.

We carefully test-washed a piece with dish soap with good results, but we are not liable for damage caused by washing. Our best advice is to wash only if necessary and then to proceed with care.
