Trimming Care Instructions

Washable Trims: Cotton, Polyester, Polypropylene, and Acrylic.

Dry Cleanable Trims: Rayon, Acetate, Viscose, Linen, Jute, and Chenille. Match washable trims to washable fabrics, dry cleanable trims to dry cleanable fabrics.

Beaded Tassels and Trims: Because of their delicate nature, these items are not washable or dry cleanable and should be removed from fabric before cleaning.

How to wash "Washable" trims
Wash by hand in mild suds and cold water. Rinse thoroughly in cold water until water runs clear. Air dry.

Reviving ball fringe
The strong action of washing machine cycles may damage trims, particularly ball and tassel fringes. If ball fringe has been abused by harsh laundering and drying, hold a steam iron over it to revive its fluffiness.

Washing intense colors
The best quality dyes are used in trims. Yet deep colors such as wine, chocolate brown and black still tend to "bleed". Before attaching to fabric these color should be rinsed thoroughly in lukewarm water until the water runs clean. Air dry at once.

Dry Cleaning
For the protection of your draperies and furnishings, be sure to use a reputable professional dry cleaner.

Trims for shrink-controlled and permanent-press fabrics
Use shrink-controlled trims (polyester). Shrink-controlled means the trim has been treated so that it will shrink a maximum of 3%. Although shrink-controlled articles can be machine washed and tumble-dried, never use high washer or dryer heats. Overall Caution : If trims are not marked " shrink-controlled", it is advisable to wash and pre-shrink trimmings before sewing to fabric to reduce shrinkage to the minimum.
It is always safer to buy a little extra yardage to allow for shrinkage in laundering and for joining, finishing off ends or rounding corners. To allow for shrinkage during laundering, hold fabric taut and ease the trim in loosely when sewing. Acetate yarns are susceptible to change color.

Dyeing Caution
Although some yarns readily accept dye, piece dyeing of product is not recommended and will not be held responsible for product if this is attempted by the customer. For non-stock colors please contact Manufacturing Specials Customer Service for requirements.
