Breaking in the Cotton
An initial 12-24hr soak* in cold water is recommended as this process allows the cotton to expand and assists it to be highly absorbent. After soaking it’s best to hang the towel to drip dry; alternatively line dry after a gentle spin cycle or tumble dry on low heat.
The more you use and wash your towels the softer and more absorbent they become.
*Only cotton Bath Towels and Pestamals need to be soaked.
Warm gentle machine wash with a natural laundry detergent keeping separate from items that may catch on loops or tassels (like zips).
Never use fabric softener or bleach. Cool to medium dryer. Do not over dry cotton.
Loose Threads & Pulls
Any loose threads on the thick looped towels should be simply cut off with sharp scissors. It will not harm the towel.
If a pull occurs on our flat woven Blankets, Throws and Pestamals do not snip it - simply find the end of the thread and pull it through as you would on a jumper.
