It comes in 10 playful colors, perfect for kids and babies and easily washable.
The Fabric NameAsotin, Washington is the last city along the Snake River route to Hells Canyon, which is the deepest gorge on the American continent. Bighorn sheep, elk, deer, black bear and mountain goats may be seen along the banks of the river. The area is a wildlife paradise. Asotin is from the Nez Perce language and means “place of eel" from the abundance of eels caught there.

*All of our fabrics can be washed with the considerations we state. Please note, though, that we do not warrant fabric shrinkage or performance when washed because equipment, processes, etc., vary dramatically. What we mean by this is that we have wash tested the fabrics many times, and are confident in these descriptions; but, you could get a different result, and, if you do, we won’t replace the fabric. Test your water for mineral content. Use minimal amounts of gentle cleaning /softening products.
