What makes it eco-friendly and sustainable?
The yarn used (60% Recycled Cotton/40% Linen) is made by combining recycled cotton and natural linen.
To elaborate, textile waste is collected from factories, shredded, and combined with natural linen fibers (sourced from sustainably grown flax)
The process does not involve any additional water or any other chemicals or dyes!
Quick notes about Linen (Flax):
- It is a hardy plant that uses less water and produces less waste than cotton crops
- Gets softer with every use
- Excellent for people with sensitive skin
- Perfect for use in summer and winter
* To preserve it's natural drape, I do not recommend washing this garment * Instead, turn inside out and lying in direct outdoor sunlight to kill bacteria. However...
If it must be washed...
-Hand wash by itself (color may bleed) in lukewarm water, not hot nor cold.
-Gently squeeze out, then roll in a towel to remove excess water.
-Linen shrinks. You must stretch it back out while it is wet. The fibers are stronger when wet so don't hesitate to really stretch.
-Lay flat to air dry, and gently untwist the tassels. Once dry it will seem a bit stiff, just like jeans, once it is worn a bit it will soften out.
-The tassels may not be straight once washed. I actually love the way it looks when wavy, but if you don't, you can easily straighten them with a flat iron or hair straightener.
