Care: Felted wool is easy to handle, yet precious material. Please treat it with care: hand wash in warm water (avoid hot temperatures) with gentle shampoo or pH neutral soap. After washing put it on and shape on a body while wet, then lay to dry. Felt can shrink or extend while wet, depending on your needs. Never put felted items in a dryer.
