Did you know fabrics can shrink anywhere from 1% to 15%+ after its first wash?
If you don't want any nasty surprises it is highly recommended you prewash all fabrics prior to sewing. For specific wash instructions please refer to the product listing.
If you can no longer find washing instructions for your fabric here is a good guide below:

- Line Dry
- No Ironing
- No Bleaching (Including Optical Brighteners and other whitening agents)*
- No Tumble Dry
- No Dry Cleaning
*Some laundry detergent include optical brighteners and whitening agents. This is a fluorescent substance added to detergents in order to produce a whitening effect on laundry which acts like bleach and can change, lighten or cause blotchy discolouration in fabric after washing.
