Ankalia ring slings are made from all natural fibres and, with few exceptions, are as easy to care for as your regular household laundry. Firstly, you must look over your ring sling before washing for the first time. We ask you to look for any weaving flaws that may have been missed along the way. If you are un-happy with your carrier then please contact us. Your ring sling will arrive to you in what is called “loom state”. Therefore, it is very important that you wash and iron your ring sling before use. This sets the weave, removes any residue and will fluff up your wrap to make it soft and smooshy.
Wash your ring sling first in one cold wash on a medium spin, and on gentle cycle for subsequent washing. We do not recommend the use of colour catchers with any textiles. Tumble dry on low. Ironing is strongly encouraged to prevent premature wear at the rails and other highly creased areas.
It is normal for your ring sling to shrink in the first wash. Ankalia have taken this shrinkage into account when they have cut and hemmed your wraps. Ring Sling rings should be covered with a piece of cloth or sock when you wash them. This not only protects the rings but also your washing machine.
