Always refer to the instructions on the yarn ball band for guidelines as to washing or dry cleaning (if you are not going to keep the ball band, transfer the information to your sketchbook). Beaded and sequinned projects should be hand washed with care. Use lukewarm water and a suitable detergent, try not to agitate the item too much and avoid wringing because this can stretch it out of shape or damage the beads and sequins. Gently squeeze out the excess water by placing the item on a towel and applying light pressure. Felted items, although already shrunk, should be hand washed to avoid additional shrinkage.
