This item is prone to bleed due to the natural method of dying. It has no affect on the fabric but may affect the color. As with any dyed fabric like jeans, fading will occur.
Hand wash with liquid detergent and cold water is the best way to clean the Yakap Shawl and Scarf, paying special attention to the pompoms. Avoid wringing the pompoms.
For machine washing, keep the Yakap Shawl and Scarf in a mesh bag. Wash it in cold water on the delicate cycle with a low spin cycle. It's best not to machine dry a rayon item, as it can destroy the fabric. If you can't avoid the dryer, keep the item in the mesh bag and dry it on the lowest heat cycle possible.
Flat drying away from direct sunlight is recommended to preserve the color and size of the fabric.
Hang drying will potentially stretch the fabric and this not recommended.
This item may potentially bleed and it is recommended to wash separately.
