Hand Crafted Cottons Care Instructions

 

The utmost care is taken in crafting these hand-dyed cottons.  The greige goods go through several processes at the Mill to prepare the fabric for dying.  Once dyed and dried in the open sun, the mill sets the color and then hand washes the dyed fabric several times; each time drying it in the sun.

FreeSpirit has done numerous wash tests in all water temperatures using a variety of detergents, including regular household detergents, Synthrapol (a special detergent used in pre-scouring fibers before dying, and in washing out fiber reactive dyes after dyeing), and with Color Catchers.  FreeSpirit has had very consistent results with minimal bleeding/crocking/color transfer.

FreeSpirit recommends the following:

  • Pre-wash yardage with like colors in hot water using the specially formulated detergent Synthrapol (available at most quilt shops).
  • If you are working with dark colors that will be appliqued to light backgrounds, pre-wash the yardage of each fabric with like colors separately.  Do not pre-wash cut applique pieces. 
  • When washing a finished project, we recommend cold water with Synthrapol.
