Do spin-dry your DIDYMOS Wrap or Sling at low speed. Wraps made of wool, alpaca, silk or cashmere blends must NOT be spin-dried.
Make sure not to dry your DIDYMOS Wrap or Sling at high temperatures – preferably use the delicates setting of the tumbler. Wraps made from wool, cashmere or silk must NOT be dried in the tumbler.
We recommend to iron your DIDYMOS Wrap or Sling after the wash, this is especially true for fabric blends with linen or hemp. Ironing is advisable for all wraps, be they made from cotton or cotton blends, as it helps to prevent folds from forming always in the same places which might affect the durability of the fabric.
Special Care for Wraps made of:
Wraps made from colour-grown cotton initially are pale but darken and get their final colour with the first washes.
Linen or Hemp
Baby Wraps or Slings made of linen or hemp are a little stiff coming off the weaving frame, however, they soften quickly when being used. You can speed up the process by pulling your DIDYMOS Wrap or Sling through warm water and letting it air-dry before using it for the first time. Undyed DIDYMOS linen or hemp Wraps or Slings can be washed at temperatures of up to 90°C/190°F (hot). This may, however, cause the fabric to lighten and fade. It is IMPORTANT to wash your DIDYMOS linen or hemp Wrap or Sling with liquid detergent ONLY!
Wraps or Slings made from wool blends require particular attention in care and wash. This means: washing at 30°C, no spin drying, no tumble drying. Wool felts easily if not treated with care!
Cashmere Wraps, too, need very special attention in care. ONLY use detergent which is suited for wool, WITHOUT optical brighteners or bleachers, or use hair shampoo as a replacement. We recommend gentle warm hand wash and abundant rinsing. Wraps and Slings made from Cashmere blends are much more sensitive to mechanical friction than pure cotton fabrics. Keep hard and sharp objects away from the wraps and do not apply pressure on single spots of the fabric in order not to damage the wrap.
Make sure to wash your silk blend Wraps and Slings at max. 30°C using mild and liquid detergent.WITHOUT optical brighteners or bleaching agents. Spin-dry at gentle and low cycle. Do NOT tumble-dry. Damp silk fabrics are sensitive to light and should not be dried directly in the sun. For ironing select “silk” setting, without steam. Perfume and deodorants may cause stains.
