How do I wash Japanese Cotton?

Wash at 30˚ using non-bio liquid.  Wash the fabric before cutting and sewing, as it is likely to shrink a little. Iron using the appropriate setting for cotton on your iron. Hang to dry naturally or tumble dry on a low setting.

More about cotton

Cotton is a natural fibre that comes from the seedpod of the cotton plant.  Cotton is the most popular fabric in the world for many reasons.  Firstly, it is easy to care for.  Secondly, this fabric ‘breathes’ so is comfortable in hot, humid weather.  As the body perspires, the fibers absorb the moisture and release it on the surface of the fabric, so it evaporates. Finally, in cold weather, if the fabric remains dry, the fibers retain body heat so keeping the wearer warm.
