Fabric Preparation and Prewash Tips
We recommend prewashing your cotton spandex fabrics to prepare them for sewing. For any fabrics that include dark, saturated, or very bright colors, we recommend a cold wash separately or with like colors only. Use a commercial color catcher to help capture any loose dye in the wash. Examine wet washed fabric before drying. If you experience transfer of color onto a white/light area of your fabric, we suggest rewashing the fabric again on cold before you dry the fabric. Drying the fabric after color has transferred can make dye transfer difficult to remove. Another tip for fixing color transfer is to soak the fabric in an oxy cleaner solution to remove the excess dye from lighter areas and then wash in cold water.
Machine wash and dry, or hang to dry.
Prewash to remove shrinkage. Use a universal or ball point needle. Best sewn with a serger or a walking foot.
