It is recommended to carefully hand wash naturally dyed products in cool/warm water using a PH neutral solution as many natural dyes are sensitive to varying PH levels and minerals, therefore using a product which is more acidic or alkaline could cause the original colour to shift. Naturally produced colours can evolve over time and develop further characteristics, it is therefore recommended to keep items out of direct sunlight.
If using light and dark colours in a project together, it is advised to test samples prior to use.
