Our latest long-sleeve tee (in lavender and dusty calico) is pigment-dyed. This gives each garment a unique, vintage, lived-in look...it also means the dye can bleed for the first few washes. For the lavender, we recommend washing with like-colors on cold. For the dusty calico, you may wish to wash it separately on the first cycle, also on cold. As with all dark-colored garments, colors may transfer onto light-colored garments in the wash...so try to only wash with like-colors for best results!
