DMC do not give specific washing instructions for this thread. If you cannot avoid washing a piece of work sewn with this thread, use a mild soap and hand wash only at a low temperature. Take into account the care guidelines for the fabric you have used. Roll your washed embroidery gently in a towel to remove excess water, ensuring the embroidery does not touch upon itself, before drying flat. Then place your work face down on a clean cloth, preferably while still damp, and iron on the reverse side, with a warm iron, with another cloth on top of your work.
