washing & care : this fine, net-like textile is woven from pure cotton and stiffened with natural plant starches for presentation. You can expect its texture to become incredibly soft and waffle-ish with wear and washing, as shown in the last picture. caya can be machine washed in cold water on a gentle cycle (a laundry bag will help prevent snags) but should not be tumble dried.
