About the Designer

"The name ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¾ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¶ÃƒÂ¢Ã‹â€ Ã…Â¡ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬ËœÃƒÂ¢Ã‹â€ Ã…Â¡ÃƒÂ¢Ã‹â€ Ã‚Â«Planted" refers literally to the leaves, however it also bares the figurative meaning of staying grounded and finding my feet during this time of uncertainty. My go-to things to draw whenever I am doodling are usually flowers or leaves. There's something quite effortless and almost therapeutic about drawing them. This design is one of the few designs I drew with pencil and paper first before translating it digitally. This design could be interpreted as a symbol for growth and new beginnings - two very relevant themes for me this year! The colour green is also associated with life, renewal and growth." - Meg

For machine washing, it is recommended to wash alone and not with other items.
In order to keep the fineness and the length of the fibres of the cotton, the blankets should be machine washed on a gentle cycle at 30° maximum, or cold water is recommended. Do not use fabric softener or bleach, and prefer a gentle spin cycle to avoid twisting or deforming.
Drying of Soft Knitwear
In order to keep their shape and fit, all items should be dried flat on a towel in a shaded area.
Do not tumble dry.
Do not hang dry.
Do not dry in direct sunlight.
Iron softly on the reverse side. It is also highly recommended to apply a damp cloth between the iron and the garment to protect the fibres.
Other Needs of Soft Cotton
Over time, it is possible that the knit will make snags or pilling in certain areas of friction. For this, there are small devices specially designed for clothing care at knit. To make up for the snags, small hooks, very easy to use, exist to remesh the threads of the items. To remove pilling, anti-pilling razors are very effective and do not damage the sublime and softness of the items.
