Care & Washing

DMC Cordonnet Special is 100% colorfast and can be washed at 95° C/203° F. Wash your finished crochet piece with one teaspoon of mild soap such as Orvus. After washing, gently wring it out and rinse it as many times as necessary to get the soap out of it (until the water is clear). Use almost cold water to rinse the piece. Wrap the piece in a towel to remove excess water, then dry flat.
