Transforming my wardrobe to natural clothing continues to reward in unimaginable ways a decade later! I am so grateful for my organic, plant-dyed cotton, hemp and wool clothing!!! To keep them natural and by following the makers instructions, I have also switched (more delightful surprises) to the most rewarding hand washing! I use handmade liquid soapnuts for laundry soap and then hang dry. Even during the winter! The clothing has the most fresh, wonderful smell! #lovelovelovelove
