Source:

Wood pulp

Benefits:

Beautiful, brilliant colors
Luxurious silk-like fabric

Precautions:

Due to bright colors, dye fading may occur when cleaned
Bright colors fade readily to sunlight
Water spots or rings develop readily due to sizings in fabric
If washed, fabric may feel limp

General Care:

Usually drycleanable in any solvent
If hand washing, do not twist or wring to remove moisture

Partial tumble dry at low temperatures, followed by air-dry to minimize shrinkage.
