 Can I wash my SockDog?

Yes you can on a 30º wash and tumble dry on a low heat to get your SockDog all fluffy.  Obviously if your SockDog is a bride or groom, or has woollen ears or a lot of felt embellishment, it will not wash in the machine and should only be sponge cleaned.

 Are Red Rufus SockDogs suitable for small children?

Red Rufus SockDogs are collectible keepsakes, hand sewn and individually
designed in our sewing rooms in Ireland. They are not toys.
For small children and babies look for the SockDogs with felt eyes and noses and no buttons.
