Washing instructions for Lotus

Even though the merino in our Lotus yarn is superwash treated, we recommend that you hand wash/lay flat to dry. In the picture below, I knit the swatch and blocked it to the size of the white outline. As an experiment, I washed it in the washing machine hot wash/warm rinse regular cycle. You can see the shrinkage in the photo. The swatch did not felt, just shrunk. You may want to try your own swatch in a gentle cycle with cold wash/cold rinse.

Our washing experiment goes to show that just because the merino is superwash, does not mean it is a superwash product!
