How do I care for my handmade WATERKNYT clothing and accessories?
Please do not over-wash your handmade WATERKNYT items.
Nearly all WATERKNYT items may be hand washed in tepid water with a mild detergent such as "Eucalan". The process:
1. Remove any appliqued embellishments first and spot clean them. For best results, do not submerge these in water.
2. For the rest of the handmade pieces, simply fill a basin with tepid water and swirl around a small amount of detergent. Gently lay your item in the water and allow it to soak for a few minutes. Press the item down into the basin to cause the soapy water to squeeze out of it, then release to re-saturate it. (The item is not removed from the water or jiggled too much during this process.) Do not scrub or agitate the item in the water. Hold the item against the bottom of the basin and tilt to let the water drain out. Add fresh water and gently rinse by pressing the item to the bottom of the basin again, letting the detergent rinse through it. Repeat this once more or until the water runs clear and free of bubbles. Note: It is normal for hand dyed woolens to release some color during this process, depending on the water and detergent pH levels and mineral content. A faint amount of color in the final rinse is acceptable.
3. After draining the water, press the item between your hands, working one area at a time to remove excess, dripping, water. Place the item on a clean towel and roll it up inside, gently pressing to remove water. Place on another clean towel to dry, gently pulling the item back to its normal shape. Do not dry on top of a direct a heat source or in direct sunlight. Genuine wool can retain up to 30% of its weight in water and yet not feel wet, thus requiring a generous air drying time which will vary with the humidity.
4. Steam press with an ironing cloth (a protective cloth like a clean, thin, woven cotton dish towel over the item as it is steamed) if needed. Replace appliques if previously removed.
