Fabric Care

Welcome to the Fabric Care page, this page is updated every month with recommended care instructions for the fabric that you receive in your SewHayleyJane subscription box.

Not all fabric comes with care instructions, in which case I will use recommendations from internet research as well as personal experience.



Winter Warmers: December 2017

  • Luxury Box - Up to 3.5 meters of the amazing Girl Charlee Bolt Cotton Spandex Knit.
    Manufacturer suggests: Machine wash cold, mild detergent, no fabric softeners, tumble dry low or hang dry.
    Bolt fabrics are pre-shrunk so you can expect less than 5% shrinkage!
  • Classic & Mini Fabric - Gorgeous & Snuggly Brushed Cotton
    Manufacturer suggests:: 30°C wash - cool tumble dry.
  • Fat Quarters - Cool hand wash, drip dry recommended.
    I recommend ironing the fat quarters on a cool setting on the reverse due to the gold print.



Festive Fever: November 2017

  • Luxury Box - Up to 3.5 meters Dashwood Studio ‘Copenhagen Blue Leaf’ cotton 110cm (43inch) wide. Manufacturer suggests: Machine wash cool (30°C-40°C), wash dark colours separately, no bleach. Tumble dry low, remove promptly, use warm iron.
  • Classic & Mini Fabric - Red on white or white on red cotton poplin 110cm (43inch) wide.
    Manufacturer suggests: Hand wash. Cool iron, dry cleanable, no bleach. We strongly recommend testing a small piece first to be sure.
    Personally I would stick this in the washing machine at a 30°C wash separately for the first wash.
  • Fat Quarters - Cool hand wash, drip dry recommended.
