Garment-washed and dyed using non-toxic dyes. Plain weave. Vintage Cotton shams have a 1' twill tape border and a hidden envelope closure to hold your pillow insert snugly in place.
Wash: Wash should be separated into light and dark colors. Do not overload machine as this will damage long cotton fibers. We recommend a lukewarm wash cycle with a gentle detergent and a cool rinse. Bleach may be used on white cotton bed linens only. Avoid using products that contain whitening agents such as chlorine bleach, alpha hydroxy acids and benzoyl peroxide on garment-dyed items. The reactive dyes used for garment-dyeing are not resistant to these whitening agents. Drying: Tumble dry with low heat. Remove bed linens promptly from the machine to reduce wrinkling. For best results, line dry. Ironing: Press while slightly damp using the Lightweight Cotton or Medium setting. Or, don't, and enjoy the soft lived-in cotton.
