You can machine wash in cold water and tumble dry on low.  You may want to iron them, but I didn't before I sent them because I knew they would get rumpled when I packed them.  The black set is 100% cotton, the white set is linen/rayon, and the lace is polyester.  It is a reproduction of Venetian lace, so is authentic.  The ribbons are long enough that you can spread the material out to launder and/or press and not lose the ends, and I tacked them in the middle, so they will stay put.  I also treated the ribbon ends with fray-check.  I don't know how many washings that will last thru, but if you use cold water it should be quite few.

The black set will get softer after you wash it a few times.  Black cottons are always a little stiff because of the dye, but they do get softer.

Melusine:Thank you so much for the instructions.  I was worried about putting them in the machine with the lace.  They really didn't get rumpled hardly at all.  The lace is amazing.  I love it!!

I didn't know the dye makes the black cotton stiff.  I could feel it, but didn't know that was the cause.  I'll wash them tomorrow.

Well, it is still raining.  It makes me very sleepy.  I wore my hair up in a bun today to protect it from the strong winds.  I'm hoping to get a cassia treatment done this weekend, now that our Opening Gate rehearsal is canceled for tomorrow.  The faire site must be a giant, muddy mess.  Yay-I can sleep in!!!

I've washed my hair with No Poo and am waiting until after the football game to have hubby apply a cassia/amla mud mix.  Opening weekend is just 2 weeks away!

I did an s&d last night, and I'm glad I did!  I haven't been doing my regular deep conditioning treatments and I can really tell the difference.  My hair wasn't in terrible shape, some splits and only one or two broken hairs.  I hope my ends will stay healthy since I s&d before I do the cassia/amla.  I am trying the amla for the first time, partly to see if it enhances my curl since the cassia loosens it and to extend the cassia.  I only have 300 grams and that still didn't cover all of my hair last time.  I'm going to mix it with water only about an hour before applying.  My ratio will be 300 grams cassia to 50 grams amla.  I'm basing this on what they recommend if you're coloring with 300 grams of henna.

Holy crap!  I don't know where to begin!

My friend hemmed up my skirt just in time for dress rehearsal on Sunday the 31st.  While there I got an offer for help to fix my dress from the wife of the guy in charge of the jousting arena.  Last night I was at her house from 6pm to 1am ripping seams.  At least 97% of my dress had to be taken apart.  It will look amazing but there's still a lot of work to be done.  I'll be back over there at 3pm today, and sure hope I won't be there all night again.

So, on that note, I haven't been around the boards much.  I hope I can get my hair measured tonight.

I am exhausted!

Happy belated birthday, sweetie.  Sorry to be late, but have been sick with stomach flu and was out of town on the weekend.

I am so glad your dress is getting fixed.  I was sure that if you asked for help at the site, you would find someone who could repair and/or alter it.  Rennies are notoriously helpful.

Sakina, is this the same product as cassia?  I think it is, but want to get your expert opinion.  I hope so, as it seems to be a decent price.

Trisha:No, it is not cassia.  BTW, there is no such thing as "neutral henna".  Henna is a totally different plant than Cassia Obavata, which is what you want.  Please read this:
http://www.hennaforhair.com/faq/cassiaobovata.html
http://www.mehandi.com/shop/cassiaobovatabuy.html

I buy my cassia from http://www.hennacaravan.com/shop/hair.html

I hope I've helped.

Whew!  I've been workin' my hiney off with the Festival!  Last weekend was a 3 day and I'm just starting to feel like I'm recovering!

As promised, here's a pic of me as Vicontessa Superbia, the Deadly Sin of Pride:

...

My awesome chemise was made by none other than our own Melusine!!!  The yellow hanky is our "cry for help" flag if a patron gets out of hand and we need help from security, so its not a normal part of my garb.  This pic was taken on Monday, President's Day.  I was so fried from the previous two days I just did my hair in a bun and wore minimal makeup.  Huzzah!
