Please inspect carefully before washing; washed items are not returnable. Please do not pull or cut loose threads; this will cause holes. Most loose threads are left loose on purpose in the manufacturing process and will felt up and "lock" naturally with washing. If you have any question about the integrity of the knit please send a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to washing. HAND WASH AND AIR DRY ONLY.
