Cutting Fabric before Dyeing?
  • I have 5 yds silk velvet, but will only need 1-2yds of it for my project (which I need to dye it for). Since the fabric is expensive, I do not want to waste any. So my question is, If I pre-wash the fabric, can I cut the indivudal peices and dye it that way, so basicly will the silk shrink more each time I wash it?
  • Hi,
    The silk could shrink about 5% -15%. It will only shrink the one time normaly when you prewash it.
