- Breaking in your sling.
We get a lot of questions asking, “how do I break my sling in?” This one is probably the easiest question to answer - use it! The number 1 way to break in you sling is to just jump in and start using it. Just like a new pair of jeans, a new scarf or a leather bag your sling just gets better with use. Washing your sling, tossing your linen sling in the dryer, steam ironing does wonders for softening, too. Don’t be afraid to steam iron your sling (including silk!), use the hottest setting on your iron (it usually says linen) and give it lots of steam! This is how we do it here in the studio and at home.
- To preserve the life of your sling follow our storage recommendations below.
For Everyday Storage : We like to keep our slings threaded and ready to go, keeping them out of direct sunlight when not in use. Really the only time you will need to unthread your sling is if you are going to wash it or store it for an extended period of time...
- Long Term Storage : If you plan to store your sling for an extended period of time we recommend unthreading it, giving it a wash and then either hanging it in a closet or rolling it up to store out of any direct sunlight. Washing it will remove any residue that could eat away at the fibers and rolling/hanging will keep the fabric nice and smooth.
