Caring for your fabrics & handmade items
Always wash your fabric on its own for the first wash.
Fabrics may have dye or print residue left over from the print / dye process.
You should avoid washing your fabrics with zips, Velcro etc and ensure fastenings are closed before washing finished garments.
Natural fibres will have a small percentage of shrinkage, washing your fabric prior to cutting your fabric is recommended.
