The Fabric used to make your Twist Original Kit is 100% natural cotton (7 ounce weight)
It is a light canvas, not as heavy as your denim jeans but not as light as a linen shirt, somewhere right in between. Our canvas is not bleached nor treated with any chemicals.
Spot clean or dry clean only.
I feel I have to explain the whole dry clean only thing. Natural cotton shrinks when it gets wet... a lot! With pre-washing, line drying and ironing the many yards of canvas to make each kit, the labor cost would far exceed the prices we are charging. We had two choices, either increase the kit cost or simply not pre-wash the fabric. We chose not to pre-wash (pre-shrink) the already pristine fabric and keep our prices where they are.
If you feel you will need to wash your covers and you agree to pay extra for pre-washed fabric kits we can send you a link for the additional ($99) service fee for us to pre-wash the canvas before sewing your kit. You will then be able to wash your covers in cold water on your gentle cycle and line dry. It may sound like an option you may want, but we feel, in reality, most customers will not untwist, empty and wash their mattress kit covers. For better option for a machine washable cover check out the lighter, Twist Easy Kit.
The Fabric used to make your Twist Easy Kit is 100% natural cotton tubular woven. This fabric has a lot of stretch without synthetic elastic. The stretch comes from how it is woven. The fabric can be machine washed on cold (to prevent shrinkage) and we recommend line drying. Turn your fabric inside out and shake off any filling materials before washing. Place your long tubes in a mesh laundry bag made for washing delicate items to prevent your tubes from getting twisted up during the wash cycle.
