I recently bought a gorgeous piece of knitted fabric which contains wool and angora. Now I’m terrified to cut it as I don’t want to ruin it. I have an overlocker and a sewing machine. Are there any tricks to prevent the fabric from running when you are manipulating it while sewing? Should I use a special thread in the overlocker and machine?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
