We recommend professional water cleaning and can suggest some very good companies. If you decide to wash them yourself, we do not accept responsibility. But for you adventurous ones, here's how to do it: Wash them using sheeting instructions, but they must be air dried and blocked. Blocking means stretching it back into shape. You will need a large surface area - some people use a bed. You will still have some shrinkage, but our coverlets are made large enough to accept this. Taking this on is a big task. A wet coverlet is heavy and difficult to handle. Silk/wool and ornamented products should be cleaned professionally. Again, we can offer recommendations.
