Care instructions

Dry cleaning is possible for all our felt products, and is the only method we recommend for our products made with needle felt technique.

Dry Surface Wash: use a wipe or a soft brush to gently wipe away crumbs, dust or something moist. Let crumbs or dirt dry before you attempt to wipe them off, as to eliminate smears on the material. If you think that the substance will cause a stain, directly proceed to hand washing.

Hand Wash with cool or cold water, using soap products indicated for wool. Press the Water out and be careful to keep the original shape of the product. Air Dry the items on a drying rack or towel, mkaing sure they are placed to dry in their original shape.
