    Keeping it Fresh

    • Cotton should be washed at a maximum of 30 degrees, however we’d strongly recommend laundering a swatch first to test.
    • Wash with similar coloured fabrics to keep the colour looking sharper for longer.
    • Pre-wash your material before cutting out to allow for any shrinkage. Cotton calico will shrink by approximately 10% after the first wash then 3% on further washes. Washing it will also reduce some of the stiffness a little.
