The Dart Roll
Your Dart Roll has two layers which come apart and should be treated differently. Normally when dry they can be stored held together as you would expect to use it. They should never be put away damp.
The base layer of wax cotton can be dried, brushed clean and stored. It will occasionally need a wax re-proof to maintain it's life expectancy and water repellency. We recommend doing this once a year as a minimum.
The top blanket layer of tweed is a 100 % wool cloth. Wool has natural antibacterial qualities, a toughness and water repellency in itself. However should you need to clean a stain we would recommend a gentle spot clean with warm soapy water to begin with. If this doesn't remove the stain then the top blanket will have to be dry cleaned.
This need to be treated slightly differently as it is all bound together. They should never be put away damp.
As above the wax cotton can be dried, brushed clean and stored. It will occasionally need a wax re-proof to maintain it's life expectancy and water repellency. We recommend doing this once a year as a minimum.
