FAQs / Fabric Details
How to wash your fabrics:
Best practice is to wash on cold and gentle and hang to dry, this helps preserve the spandex and lycra fibres and any specialty finishes like foils/vinyl that may be on the fabric. If they need to be put through a serious wash, turn garments inside out to preserve any specialty finishes on the surface. Same goes for if you have to put things through the dryer, make sure that they are inside out.
Each fabric listing has a detailed description of it's texture and fibre content but for a basic comparison of our main bases here we go:

StretchMesh: Soft printed micromesh with excellent drape and super stretchy, used for mesh detail and inserts in garments, NOT compressive and must be treated delicately to prevent holes.
