Fabric Care

Caring For Your Fabric
Fabric is precious. We’ve put together a few guidelines to help you care for your fabrics. 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 or styles and delicate items. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Please follow the care and prewash guidelines as outlined below to help launder your fabrics correctly.

Silk
Dryclean only or handwash at your own risk using a silk friendly detergent. If hand washing, wash colours separately, do not wring, drip dry in shade. Do not bleach or tumble dry. Use a warm iron on silk setting.

Cotton
Machine washable and bleachable if white. Wash colours separately, do not twist and wring. Tumble dry on cool setting or dry in shade to avoid fading. Use a hot or warm iron on cotton setting. Drycleanable.

Laces And 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. Avoid using clip hangers as these can bruise or mark the fabric.
