Winthrop is a rugged blend of organic linen and organic cotton fibers. The tightly twisted yarns are woven into a sturdy canvas to create a soft yet substantial feel. At 25K Wyzenbeek Double-Rubs, it can stand up to most anything. And Winthrop is certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) so you can rest easy about its pedigree.
If you expect machine washing slipcovers to be part of your care for your EcoBalanza piece, Winthrop fabric is washable in all temperatures -though we recommend cool water and line drying to minimize wear and to save on resources. Winthrop will experience minimal shrinkage (3% or less) through the first wash, so consider having your fabric pre-washed for $5 per yard.
For fabric attached to the frame of your EcoBalanza piece, we recommend occasional vacuuming (preferably with an upholstery attachment) to keep your upholstery looking its best over time. Dirt and dust contribute to the breakdown of natural fibers, so this simple step can extend the life of your fabric considerably.
