Tips for Washing EdMar Rayon Threads
EdMar rayon threads are colorfast, meaning the color will not fade or change under normal washing, handling, and exposure. This does not mean that they are impervious to damage. Bleaches will bleach the thread, solvents, acids, and alkaline substances will damage the thread and prolonged exposure to sunlight may fade or change certain colors. With a little care, your embroidery projects will last for generations with the same brilliance and luster as it had on the day you finished it.
Although the threads are colorfast, some colors are more prone to bleeding than others. This is particularly true with the reds due to the large amount of dye needed to color the thread. Bleeding occurs when excess dye is released from the fiber and drawn onto the fabric. Excess dye is not permanent and will wash out completely. To reduce the chances that your embroidery will bleed, dry the piece promptly after washing. If you find that colors have bled, emerse the article in hot water and detergent for 30 minutes and then rinse in cold water until all of the detergent is gone. Dry the article promptly to prevent the fabric from wicking any excess dye from your embroidery.
The following method has proven highly effective in cleaning and caring for embroidered articles. If followed, it greatly reduces the chances of permanently damaging your work.
