With any true indigo fabric (like this one,) there’s a risk of color transfer — called crocking — in which some of the blue rubs off on light-colored fabrics or your skin. This effect is most pronounced the first time you wear it, but it usually comes out in the washing machine or the shower. It’s inherent to natural indigo dye, and it’s part of what makes those garments fade so beautifully over time. Still, for the first few wears, we recommend laundering separately and staying away from light-colored upholstery.
