COTTON+STEEL Fabric Collections
The fabrics in the Cotton+Steel collections are dyed using reactive dyes, therefore, colours are stable and will not released any excess dye. This means that there is no pre-washing necessary when you sew using these fabrics. If you do choose to prewahs, wash in cold water and damp dry. Complete the drying process by air drying. This washing and drying method will retain the finish of the fabric and will meet the standards of quilters who do not want to prewash fabrics, and those who do.
