Preview - Tomorrow

Tomorrow we Cut Fabric so you can get a head start by pre-washing anything that you intend to wash as a garment.  For me that generally means washing everything but silk, in cold or warm water gently.  For linen and cotton warm and dry hot.  I want them to shrink as much as then are going to, before the garment is made.  For wool I wash in cold with a bit of baby shampoo and dry gently.  I don't want to raise that much of the nap, unless I am going for the peasant look, in which case wash warm and dry hot.  Buy extra if you are going to do this as you will loose about a 1/4 yard for every two yards in length.
