All yarn materials are machine washable and dryable. It is recommended to wash on delicate cycle or place in lingerie bag. The yarn is knotted and tied off well, but the loose ends are woven into the design. During normal wash cycle, loose ends may come untucked. They can be pushed through to the wrong side or re-woven in with a crochet hook.
The Red Heart yarn will felt, or become softer and fuzzier, after several washings.
The plastic containers under the cover are not dishwasher safe. Hand wash only.
