how to care for your kukukitchoo stockings

  1. NEVER wash your stocking. Each stocking is handmade and items are secured either by glue or tack stitching. They will not hold up in a washer, even hand washing is a bad, bad idea.

  2. While stockings can hold items, such as coal and gifts, don’t put too much weight in them. This will weaken the bonds of the stocking. to keep your stockings for many, many years and lighten up the load.

  3. If something does come loose or fall off, don’t freak out. You can glue items back on. I recommend using Aleene’s Max Tacky Adhesive. If you don’t have this around or can’t buy it, then any tacky glue will work. Lie the stocking flat, put paper towels or a piece of cardboard inside the stocking, apply a bit of glue (not too much as it may stain the stocking), and reattach whatever piece. Wait 24 hours before you go back to hanging it or filling it or whatever. If you need a replacement item, don’t be afraid to ask. I have a drawer full of random bits that may contain the item you’re looking for. If not, I can come up with a suggestion.

  4. I’d keep the stocking away from direct sunlight. The sun is a bad mother on just about anything. Just keep it away.
