View Full Version : Do you wash your bamboo fabric before cutting it?
Just wondering what's best - do you prewash your bamboo before you cut it? I've only ever made pockets or Ai2s with bamboo fleece inserts/clip in's and I don't prewash the fleece, and never had any probs (they do shrink a bit but I allow for that). Now I want to make a few bamboo towelling fitteds for night nappies, with a inner layer of suedecloth. I thought I'd ask rather than experiment since its so expensive!
Any thoughts would be appreciated. :)
It will shrink so I would definitely wash it first.
I always prewash, it does shrink, so better safe than sorry
sounds like the way to go, thanks girls. :thumbsup:
I hot wash twice and dry in the dryer to make sure it has shrunk properly.
if i am making a tri fold booster then i allow for shrinkage, if making a nappy then yeah i make sure its washed and pre shrunk first.
