To ensure your fabric stays looking good we recommend the following laundry care:
1) Prewash fabrics before making your items. This allows the natural fibres to shrink before you cut them out rather than after you’ve first worn them. Most fabrics have some shrinkage on first wash but it is usually under 10%.
2) Turn your item inside out. This helps prevent other items rubbing up against your fabric bobbling and snagging the fibres.
3) Wash at 30. As well as keeping your bills down and helping the environment, washing on a cool setting helps keep the colours from fading. If you really need to wash it at a higher temperature use a gentle setting.
Why buy a sample?
Unsure about what colour to get? Not sure how the fabric will feel or want to compare weight?
We strongly suggest purchasing a sample so you can feel the quality of the fabric in your hands.
All samples are free post.
Will the fabric I buy later match the samples exactly?
Most of the time yes. But colours do vary slightly from shipment to shipment due to dye level fluctuation. We will only send out samples which match what is held in stock. However if we get a new batch in stock after you have received your sample we cannot guarantee an exact match. It is best to order your required fabric as soon as possible after receiving and being happy with your sample.
If I buy a fabric and need more later will the colour be exactly the same?
Colours can vary slightly from batch to batch so we cannot guarantee a true colour match. It is always best to get all you need in one go.
