Embroidery

Fancy needlework or trimming usually done by hand using colored yarn, metallic thread, or embroidery floss made of cotton, silk, or wool.

Test Item

If you are unsure of the fabric composition, perform a water test.

It’s also important to test embroidered items for color stability.

Handwash

Handwashing is always the best and safest method for washing embroidered items.

Add 2 capfuls or a squirt of Delicate Wash to a washbasin or sink filled with cool water.

Submerge the item and gently agitate the water with your hands to evenly distribute soap. Soak for up to 30 minutes.

Rinse well by running cool water through the item until the water is no longer soapy.

Do not wring. Instead, press the water out of the item.

Machine Wash

We do not encourage machine washing embroidered items.

If you do, be sure to turn the item inside out, and place it in a Mesh Washing Bag.

Select the delicate cycle on the washing machine, and make sure the water temperature is cold and the spin is on low.

Add the appropriate amount of Delicate Wash according to the machine and load size.

Dry & Finish

Lay the item flat in its natural shape on a drying rack or hang to dry. Do not put it in the dryer!

To remove wrinkles, we recommend steaming for the best and safest finish.

If ironing, use the lowest temperature setting; turn the item inside out, and press on the wrong side of the fabric. A pressing cloth between the iron and item will be safest.

To freshen items between wearings, spritz with Delicate Spray.

Cohabiting with lovable, furry pets? Use the no-bristle, friction-charged Pet & Lint Brush to eliminate fur and pet hair from embroidered pillows and upholstery.

Store

Knit items should be stored folded to prevent stretching or distorting. Woven items such as pants can be hung.

Always store items clean. We recommend storing in a breathable cotton Storage Bag to protect items from bugs.

Storing in plastic encourages yellowing and can trap mildew-causing moisture, a prime environment for bugs.
