How to Care for your Slow Yarn Macrame

To ensure your piece arrives safely, it will be packed securely for shipping.

During transport your piece can get a bit wrinkled and will need some love and care when you have unpacked it. After receiving your piece, unpack it as soon as possible. 

If you are unsure how to get your piece looking perfect, please get in touch and I can give you some tips and guidance.

  • Use your fingers to run through and straighten up the macramé.
  • For pieces that have a soft fringe, you may like to use a comb or brush through the fringe so it sits nicely. 
  • You may need to gently manipulate the macramé to straighten your piece and ensure it sits flat against the wall. 
  • Cotton fibre macramé pieces are designed for use indoors.
  • To clean your wall hanging, lightly dust.
