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 Obsidian Black is the same, just not combined with linen!
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.
