The Bathen Waffle Knit Bathrobe and Towel Set are both handwoven and made from 100% cotton. Due to this, they should be handled with care.
For optimal preservation and maximum shrinkage prevention:
Hand or machine wash your Waffle Bathrobe or Towels in cold water on delicate/gentle cycle, and lay flat or hang to air dry. While waffle weave will naturally contract, as can be expected as it makes the material absorbent, it should also stretch back out to its original size in time. If a more flattened weave is desired, you can use a warm iron as needed.
Notice any unwanted shrinkage?
While waffle weave fabric will naturally contract, we recommend following the instructions below to help return your handmade pieces to their original size:
- Dampen your item, stretch it out onto a larger towel, and roll it up — this will allow the tightened waffle fabric to relax.
- After about 20-30 minutes, unwrap the item and lay flat or hang to air dry. This should bring the length back!
- Once it has dried, you can iron it out a bit to further flatten the waffle knit.
