TAKING CARE OF YOUR WAYWARD WOVEN

Your wrap has already been washed, finished, and is ready to wear. Due to the nature of fabric, wrap lengths can vary after a wash or being worn.  Fibers relax or stretch slightly. Our wraps are measured to length after a wash and iron.

 

All of our wraps are handmade and have specific instructions for care that will prolong the life of your wrap. Care/washing instructions are listed on the wrap label, found at the end of one tail.

 

We recommend only washing your wrap when necessary. For machine washable wraps, gentle cycle is always recommended. Use only wrap safe liquid detergent, free of optical brighteners and fabric softeners. For a full list of detergents, please review this fantastic resource on detergents. Though originally written for use in cloth diaper laundry, the information is applicable for choosing a detergent for your woven wrap.

 

Check your wrap for damage or wear before each use. If damage is visible, stop using the wrap immediately. If you have questions on loose threads or any other visible damage, please contact us for more information.

 

DO NOT USE BLEACH OR FABRIC SOFTENER.

 

FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAN PERMANENTLY DAMAGE YOUR WRAP, RENDERING IT UNSAFE FOR BABYWEARING.

SPECIFIC FIBER CARE

This list appears in order from easiest care to the more high maintenance fibers. Easy care fibers, like cotton, can generally be machine washed and dried, while non-easy care fibers, like wool, must be hand washed and laid flat to dry. If your wrap is a blend of fibers, please wash according to the fiber that requires the gentlest care.

COTTON

Your all cotton wrap can be machine washed on gentle in cold or warm water, then line dried or dried in the dryer on low. Do not use fabric softener, bleach, or dryer sheets. You may steam iron on the cotton setting.

LINEN

Wraps containing linen can be machine washed on gentle in cold or warm water, with low spin, then line dried. Do not use fabric softener, bleach, or dryer sheets. You may steam iron on the cotton setting. Linen wraps may take a little extra time to break in and can be prone to wrinkles, but steam ironing can help!

TENCEL©

Wraps containing Tencel© can also be machine washed on gentle in cold or warm, then line dried or put in the dryer on low. Do not use fabric softener, bleach, or dryer sheets. You may steam iron on the rayon setting. ​

ROSE, BAMBOO, PEPPERMINT or other RAYON

Wraps containing rayon, such as rose, bamboo or peppermint must be hand washed in lukewarm water, then laid flat to dry. We recommend washing in a sink or tub, then laying it on towels and rolling to remove excess moisture. Unroll and lay flat until dry. You may steam iron on the rayon setting.

SILK

Wraps containing silk must be hand washed in lukewarm water with a delicates detergent, then laid flat to dry. We recommend washing in a sink or tub, then laying it on towels and rolling to remove excess moisture. Unroll and lay flat until dry. Iron on low, no steam.

WOOL

Wraps containing wool must be hand washed with a wool safe detergent in lukewarm water, then laid flat to dry. We recommend filling a sink or tub with lukewarm water, add a small amount of wool safe detergent, gently submerge the wrap, swish it around a bit, then let sit for 30 minutes. Avoid excess agitation or extreme temperature changes. Do not wring. Instead, lay your wrap out flat on towels, then roll it up to remove excess moisture. Unroll and lay flat to dry. You may iron on low, no steam.
