The yarn it is knitted from is a 77% bamboo blended fiber that is luxuriously soft in variegated colors of soft teal blues, aquas, and soft browns. Reminds me of soothing waters.
Recommend hand wash gently in cold water with a few drops of shampoo. Rinse (may put a few drops of fabric softener in the water if you like), roll in a towel to remove excess water (do not hand wring it), lay flat, reshape and air dry. I have washed and blocked it for you, ready for you to wear upon it"s arrival.
