Fabric Care: The wool composition makes this a special care fabric. You will need to handwash with cool water (preferable), or use the delicate cycle with little to no agitation and hang/lay flat to dry. You may also choose to steam clean. Prior to sewing, it is advised to pretreat this fabric as you will treat your finished garment as the fabric may shrink some depending on your care routine. Wool is wonderful fiber, incredibly insulating and worth the extra care. Wool also has antimicrobial/antibacterial properties by nature and will require less washing than other fibers.
Kayla used this fabric to create a cropped Marlo Sweater and opted to machine wash on a delicate cycle with Soak and hung to dry. She used a total of 2 yards to create a size 8 sweater. She cut the bands perpendicular to the grainline, where the greatest stretch would run with the band length.
