There are many steps before I actually get to create a design and fabric laundering is one of the key components. It may sound mundane, but laundering changes the fabric and brings it back to its natural form. Plus it gives me an idea of how the fabric will behave and hold up once it leaves my home for yours!
I take care to launder all of my fabrics before starting any project. In fact, all new fabric heads to a dedicated basket ready to be laundered at the next available moment. This is often a challenge. A test of discipline. I normally want to get started right away, but patience will pay off.
I want your items to stay the same after washing and actually get softer with repeated washing as is the case with linen.
A little extra TLC and effort to ensure you have a superior final product without any harmful effects on our lovely planet!
