Guatemalan Fabric Care
Guatemalan fabric is 100% cotton, but as it is hand dyed and handmade washing instructions should be followed to maintain the vivid colors.
1. For the first washing, hand wash or soak fabric in a combination of water and a small amount of non-iodized salt (kosher is okay) to set the colors.
2. After setting the colors the fabric may be machine washed in cold water using a mild soap.
4. Expect fabric to shrink approx. 1" in width and length per yard.
