Place your dyed tassels into the special containers and microwave carefully according to instructions. Note: make sure your tassels are still damp before microwaving to avoid any potential scorching. Your yarn must be damp! If it dries out before you place in the container, simply dampen a bit under the faucet or by misting with water.

Once your tassels have processed in the microwave and set, place them in a mesh laundry bag and wash on gentle cycle, then air dry.
