Always read and use the care instructions on your yarn's label. If you need help interpreting the symbols used on the label, check our Yarn Label Symbols page.
Rayons can be hand washed, but dry cleaning may be recommended. They should not be dried in a machine, or exposed to high heat from the iron. Again, always check your yarn label for specific care instructions.
Skein Lane recommends using a "wool wash" product such as Eucalan, and tepid water (not cold); it's not just for wools. Never use Woolite, as it contains a bleaching agent that can discolor your yarn. You may also add touch of hair conditioner to rinse water for extra softness.
Do not wring or twist the wet item. Wrap in a towel and gently squeeze out the excess water before laying flat to dry.
