How to care
SILK AND COTTON BANDANNAS
Hand wash or gentle cycle with cold water using a mild pH neutral detergent. Wash with like colors and tumble dry low. To keep your silk noil bandanna soft you can use a small amount of fabric softener or a dryer sheet or ball. It will also soften back up with wear.
If you’re wondering what a pH neutral soap is, “Free and clear” detergents, or hypoallergenic detergents are usually a safe bet. Even a small amount of Dawn dish detergent will work in a pinch (for hand wash only).
All natural fiber dyed fabrics will fade with time. Last Chance bandannas have been washed several times to rinse out excess dye and soften the fabrics. The cotton bandannas dyed with fiber-reactive dye are pretty darn color-fast. Natural dyes on the silk are prone to fading, we call this “Beausage” (Beauty+Usage). It is part of their charm.
HANDWOVEN WILD RAGS
Hand wash cold OR delicate wash in a mesh laundry bag and hang to dry. The handspun cotton will dry with a beautiful crinkle after wash. Leaving this as-is or pressing it out with a hot steam iron is totally a personal aesthetic choice.
WOODEN BOLO SLIDE
These slides are finished with a natural oil and wax, making them low maintenance. All wood requires some TLC, especially if used regularly. If you get caught out in the rain, or notice opaque spotting, you can use the natural oils and warmth of your hands to rub those out. We suggest supplemental wax and buffs over time to help protect the surface, especially after extended exposure to skin oils, moisture, etc. This is really just an occasional thing whenever you notice it loses some luster. When worn regularly your bolo slide may need this maybe once or twice per year.
