Care Instructions for Naturally Dyed Fabric:
- May machine wash on gentle with a free + clear, neutral detergent. (I properly rinse, wash and dry these fabrics to remove all excess dye; however, please wash alone or with like colors to account for potential bleeding.)
- May tumble dry on low heat setting or line dry.
- May iron with low heat.
- Limiting direct sunlight and minimizing washing will help to protect the natural dyes from fading and/or discoloration

I hope that this is the perfect fabric for your creative project!” – Alex, Borrowing Color, LLC
Natural Dye Disclaimer
Naturally dyed products have a unique beauty that can never be captured by modern dye methods. Hours, days and even weeks-worth of work go into every piece. Natural dye produces a “living color.“ Because of its organic nature, every piece is constantly adapting and evolving throughout its lifecycle. No two are ever alike and no piece will likely maintain its color forever. While color-fastness is sought after throughout the dying process, the lifetime of each piece will be determined by its use (number of washes, exposure to direct light, etc.). Some see these traits as a weakness of sorts, but in actuality, this is the beauty of natural dye! It truly is alive and is meant to be enjoyed for as long as it’s lifecycle lasts.
