Fabric has been washed on gentle and dried on low after dyeing. Slight color variation of lighter or darker areas are minimal, but are expected and may be present on naturally hand dyed fabrics.

Color nuances may vary based on your computer screen settings. Naturally hand-dyed yarn color will vary slightly between batches. You may notice minor shade or variegation differences between skeins and batches. Please be sure to purchase all yarn needed for a project from one batch, and alternate skeins to prevent color pooling.

Naturally dyed color will last the lifetime of the garment and beyond with proper care. 
To extend the life of the fibers and deep colors, hand wash in pH neutral soap and hang to dry. Naturally dyed clothing can be machine washed in cool water and a gentle detergent. Tumble dry on low. Avoid bleach, baking soda, and vinegar when washing.
Do not dry or store clothing in direct sunlight. Avoid wearing deodorant with baking soda while wearing naturally dyed clothing. Avoid contact with iron rust and strong acids like lemon juice, wine, or vinegar, which can shift or bleach natural color. If the garment comes in contact with a strong acid or alkaline substance, immediately soak the garment in cool water and pH neutral soap to neutralize the reaction. Hand wash and line dry.
Take care when spot treating stains and test an area of the fabric first. Dilute pH neutral soap in water and allow to soak on the spot before washing and drying. Multiple gentle treatments and washes may be needed for stubborn stains like oil.
Indigo dyed items may rub small amounts of blue in areas of high friction. This is called crocking, and is a normal part of wearing indigo dyed items. It does not indicate poor dye quality. This is because unlike other natural dyes, indigo forms a physical, not chemical, bond with the fibers. Great care is taken during the dye process to ensure minimal crocking during daily wear. Any blue from crocking will wash easily off your skin and other clothing.
