Your macramé piece can last a very long time if you care for it properly. Here are a few simple steps you can take to ensure your piece lasts a long time.
1. As soon as you receive your macramé, unroll it and hang. It may have become crinkled during transport, but everything should straighten back out once it has had time to hang. Run your fingers through the cords and straighten using pictures for reference.
2. Brush or comb any fringe or tassels. I try to always wrap these details in parchment but once in transit it is out of my control. So you may need to give it a once over with a comb to put everything back in place.
3. Do not soak or wash your macramé. If you need to spot clean, do so with cold water or distilled white vinegar and a clean cloth. For outdoor plant hangers try to water plants out of the hanger and hang in an area where it receives little to no rain.
4. Shake it out. Every so often take it out side and gently shake from side to side to remove any dust or debris.
Do not ever hesitate to reach out to me if you come across an issue that is not listed in these preventative care steps.
I hope your macramé brings you much joy for years to come.
