Wrap your neni in the poignant words of our island's Fanohge Chamorro song. First written in English in 1919 and translated to Chamorro in the 1970s when Chamorros were experiencing a resurgence of pride in the language and culture, The Guam hymn, or Kantikun Guahan, more commonly known as Fanohge Chamorro, was written and composed by Dr. Ramon Manilisay Sablan, the island’s first Chamorro medical doctor, and an outspoken Chamorro rights activist. Fanohge Chamorro was adopted as the official song of the territory in 1919 and translated into Guam’s native language, Chamorro, by Lagrimas Leon Guerrero Untalan in 1974.

Original Fanohge Chamorro Patgon Blanket
MINKY AND SHERPA: Wash in cold water, and never use liquid fabric softeners. Heavy Soaps and Softeners will cling to the fibers and will drastically reduce the softness. Vinegar is an excellent fabric softener and can be used as a substitute. Just add to the “fabric softener” dispenser. Air Dry when possible. Tumble dry without heat, you can use a Low Heat, however any heat can increase static and reduce the softness slightly. When using a tumble dryer to dry pull the item out of the dryer before it is 100% dry, take it out at about 90% dry to avoid excessive static cling and lay/hang it to dry the rest of the way. A light misting with plain water in a spray bottle will remove static cling.
ORGANIC MUSLIN: Wash your muslin blanket with like colors before your first use. Use only chlorine-free bleach, if necessary. Tumble dry on low heat. Don’t ever iron or dry clean your muslun. Don’t use fabric softener.
QUILTS AND COMFORTERS: Wash in the washing machine with cold water on the gentle cycle with a low sudsing, mild detergent like Dreft or Woolite. Line dry, or tumble dry on low.
