    This denim will continue to soften and lighten slightly upon continual washing.

    • 165cm wide.
    • Country of origin; India
    • Wash at 30 degrees with a non bio detergent, on a low spin.

    We recommend pre washing your denim before sewing. Putting a large piece of medium-heavy weight denim into the washing machine can sometimes lead to white creases in the denim, this is because it is a stiff fabric so it doesn’t have room to move around. We recommend doing the following to help this not to happen:

    • Wash your denim on its own for the first wash.
    • Sink your denim in water before hand, letting it fully absorb, so you are putting in the denim already wet.
    • If you can break up your denim fabric into half this will help.
    • For the first wash use a delicate 30 degree cycle with non bio detergent on a low spin.
    • If any white creases develop ironing whilst still damp will help.
    • Do not tumble dry.
    • When you have made the garment we would recommend washing it inside out.
