Just in time to take advantage of our current online midweight wool sale, Carolyn, the talented seamstress from the sewing blog Diary of a Sewing Fanatic wrote a wonderful series of tips on pretreating wool crepe fabric. She mentions four methods, and writes in detail on the forth; the London shrink method, dry-cleaning, washing and drying, and her practically patented steam the heck out of it method. Although dry cleaning is the easiest method, it is expensive. If you choose to take your wool into your own hands, we recommend trying it out on a small price of test wool first.
