I finished two little plaids this week.
The front is croched and the back is in jute.
Because they will be for sale at Mieke Willems,
I had to wash them first to see how the two
materials react on eachother, the jute is very
stiff in wet state and i was afraid of damaging
the work. But you can see the result here, the
plait is perfectly washable.
wash by hand
use fabric softener, it will make the jute a bit more
spin dry and smooth out the jute-side.
dry flat, it will take some time because there's
three layers of fabric.
iron with steam on the jute-side, stretch out
the fabric when it is needed.
Feel free to contact me in case you have more
In general i wash everything by hand and dry it flat
Ps. something went wrong with my previous post,
i was replacing an image and i'm afraid i messed it up,
