Caring for your fabric  

Fabric is precious. We've put together a few guidelines to help you care for your new purchase. It's a good idea to pre-wash any washable natural fibres that you will be washing in the future, as some shrinkage may occur.
We recommend pre-washing in the same way you intend to wash your future fabric creation including drying.
Wash light and bright colours separately, as some colours may run in their first few washes. Please note, these care tips are guidelines only and variations will apply to some fabrics. Special washing instructions will apply to some fabrics such as satins, sequinned, beaded, coated or foiled fabrics as well as specialty weights/styles and delicate items. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Please follow the care & prewash guidelines as outlined below as we are unable to accept claims on fabrics which have been laundered incorrectly.

Laces / Jacquards

Dryclean only. Please note some of these fabrics are delicate so please be careful against rough surfaces and snagging.

Velvet

Dry clean only. Do not spot clean. Never iron as ironing is likely to crush or flatten the natural pile. A hand held steamer can be used to remove creasing. Alternatively, hang your fabric or garment in a steamy bathroom as the steam may help relax any creasing. We would recommend that you unpack your fabric upon arrival and store it rolled, rather than folded. Velvet garments are best kept handing. Avoid using clip hangers as these can bruise or mark the fabric.

Nylon / Polyester

Cold machine wash, do not bleach. Wash colours separately, do not twist/wring. Tumble dry on low temperature. Use a cool iron.
