care of your fine fibres

The commercial dyes I use are very wash and light fast, and are founders of the global 

Responsible Care® initiative. The botanical dyes I work with have been chosen for their light and wash fast qualities. 

 

To preserve your chroma nima heirloom, store it out of the sun. Hand wash it gently in cold water, wrap it in a towel and squeeze it dry. Try not to agitate or wring it. Then reshape and dry flat.

 

 Moths are a source of worry if you have a lovely tasty collection of hand knits. The best way to deal with these pests is place your item inside two sealed plastic bags, pushing out the air first. Place in the freezer for a couple of days, thaw it for a further couple, back in the freezer, out again, and back in again; so it'll go in the freezer for 2 days or so, 3 times. The eggs can withstand an amount of cold. It's the temperature variation that will kill them off. Your item is now safe to be stored until you need it again.
