CARE

They can be machine washed on your coolest cycle (30 degrees and below). The cotton will become softer with every wash.

Take extra care with tails and ears, we recommend washing anything with these details inside a delicates bag or standard pillowcase.

Always wash with similar colours and iron on a medium heat. 

They are not suitable for tumble drying or dry cleaning, please leave your toys to dry naturally.   

Avoid placing them in direct sunlight as this may cause the dye to fade slightly.
