About Your Mecate
Attaching your mecate to a bit with slobber straps:
How we recommend caring for your woollen mecate and reins:
- If you can, remove your mecate from bosal and leave loosely coiled and hanging up between uses.
- Don't coil the mecate against the direction of the twist/grain
- When tying your mecate, especially when tying onto slobbers, tie in the direction of the twist/grain
- Avoid dragging your mecate on the ground. This prevents matter getting into the fibers which could cause damage to your mecate.
Cleaning a woollen mecate:
Gentle swish in luke-warm water and coil on the floor to dry.
