Caring for your NuYarn© Merino

  • Submerge garment and swirl in water for 3-5 minutes.
  • Rinse clean in water that is the same temperature as wash water.
  • Squeeze out as much water as possible but do not wring or twist the garment.
  • Lay garment flat on a dry absorbent towel then roll the towel and press gently to remove excess water.
  • Shape stretch garment back to proper shape and size while still wet.
  • Dry away from direct sunlight.
