When in doubt, please email us ahead of making your order and we can help you select the colours and shapes that are right for your project.

ARE CERAMIC BUTTONS DURABLE?
Cared for properly, a ceramic button should give you many years of use. All the buttons have been fired in a kiln to stoneware hardness and can handle normal use on clothing. However, they are not plastic buttons and breakage, although unlikely, could happen if they are hit very sharply against a hard object.
ARE THE BUTTONS HEAVY?
One concern of knitters is whether the buttons are heavy and prone to sagging. Most of the buttons are quite light in weight (similar or slightly heavier than their plastic counterparts) and will work well on knitted garments. Of course larger buttons will be heavier than smaller buttons.
If you are unsure if the button will work for your particular project, send us an email with your questions and we will do our best to answer them.
ARE THE BUTTONS WASHABLE
All the buttons are washable and are not affected by water or laundry detergent. They can be machine washed - a gentle cycle is best. Of course hand washing is always best, particularly for the larger lightweight buttons (over 1 inch/20mm). Air drying is recommended to avoid the button being struck against the metal interior of a dryer drum.
