BLACK / DARK PONCHOS
Like any dark coloured towelling, at first the fluff from these can sometimes be bothersome, so we've listed what you should do to minimise this:
Remove the tags and put your poncho in the dryer on an airing setting (cold) for 30min intervals with a clean lint tray.
You will see fine cotton particles build up in the lint tray, these are the pieces that are not and never were attached to the towelling that have been dyed.
Go light on the detergent, the lighter you use this and hot water the longer the colour will hold. Some of our personal towels are still as bright as the day they arrived because we use them to dry, dry them on the line and hang up to use again.
SEAMS & JOINS
All of the ponchos have reinforcing sewn into them, you do still need to factor in under the arms and the split in the leg.
Sheer force will break anything.
