FAQ'S

Why should I make my own wraps?
Because it is easy and it’s fun. They make a great gift, you can do it with your friends and if you use your own fabric you can create your own unique
wraps...and you can save money!

What ingredients are in the bee folk blend?
Locally sourced natural unrefined beeswax, pine tree resin, organic coconut oil and Australian jojoba oil. For my info on these ingredients check out our blog Our Ingredients.

What fabric is best?
Our DIY kits use 100% GOTS certified organic cotton. You can use your own fine cotton off cuts. As a guide, anything about bedsheet thickness is good, or if you are buying fabric, poplin quilting is ideal. But avoid thick loose woven materials and please don’t use synthetics. For more ideas see our blog Guide to Re- Purposing Fabrics.

Can I use hemp?
We also supply natural hemp DIY kits and you can use your own light weight hemp fabric too.

How long does it take to make?
If you have your all fabric cut and ready to go the melt, dip, dry process takes about 30 minutes for a one bar set of wraps.

How much fabric will one bar cover?
It depends a bit on the material you use but typically one bar is enough to cover 1/3 square meter or one set of wraps - one large 35cm x 35cm, two medium 27cm x 27cm and two small 18cm x 18cm.  For more details see our Coverage Guide.

What other fabric sizes and shapes can I make?
You can cut any size or shape that you like, maybe cut a circle to fit over your favourite bowl or a rectangle for a serving dish. Refer to the Coverage Guide to see how much bee folk blend you will need.

How do I use my wraps?
Use the warmth of your hands to seal it over a bowl or plate and to shape around fruit, vegetables, cheeses, sandwiches and snacks.

What shouldn’t I wrap?
Never use your wraps for covering raw meat, hot foods and liquids.
How do I clean my wraps?
Wash your wraps with a damp soapy sponge, rinse in cool water and air dry – but don’t put them in the dishwasher.

How do I store my wraps?
However, you store them, make sure it is in a dry, airy place. We like to roll our wraps up and keep them in a tall glass jar on our kitchen bench ready for use.

How can I refresh my wraps?
You can refresh your wraps as needed by putting them on baking paper and spreading them out in the sun, or putting on a tray in the oven at lowest heat for a short while. You can renew your wraps to their original condition by re-dipping into a small amount of bee folk bar.

How long will my wraps last?
With care your wraps should last up to a year depending on usage. At the end of their lifetime, simply cut them into strips for composting or use them as firelighters!
