Care Instructions

    Have you ever wondered, should I wash my fabric before sewing? The answer is a resounding YES. Washing fabric before sewing not only removes any dust and particles from the manufacturing process, but it also is an important step in pre-shrinking your fabric. Now I am sure I have you asking, why do I need to pre-shrink my fabric? Well, if you think of any ready to wear garment you have bought before, you wore it once, it looked fabulous. But then, after it was washed it became too small and unwearable, the reason for this is the fabric was not pre-shrunk. By pre-shrinking the fabric, and then cutting and sewing your project you are avoiding it shrinking in the future. This will result in a garment that will fit better and be worn for years to come.
French Terry & Rib Knit (Cotton Spandex)
  • Pre-wash your French terry fabric before sewing; cotton is a natural fiber, it can shrink between 5-10%
  • Wash in cold water (below 30 degrees)
  • Tumble dry on low or air dry

Waffle Fabric (Cotton Spandex)

  • Pre-wash your waffle fabric before sewing. Waffle fabric, due to its texture will condense after washing. Waffle can shrink between 10-15% after its first wash.
  • Wash in cold water (below 30 degrees)

Amazing French Terry

This French Terry is one of the best that I have sewed with. It’s soft, has great stretch and the colours are vibrant. It washes well and the Rib Knit matches perfectly.

Melanie W
So happy with my order

I could not be happier with my purchase. The colour is perfect, the feel is brilliant and it washed really well. At 180cm width there will be no playing Tetris with my pattern pieces. This is my first time buying from here but it won't be my last.
