I am determined to embark on a stash buster project tomorrow. Top of the list is making V8860 out of a piece of woolly fabric I bought a year ago intending to make a cape, before I realised that all capes do actually look weird on me. I am keen to press on because it will make up a piece of large fabric that is taking up a lot of space, and should be something that won’t take that long to make.
The problem is I am very scared of pressing or steaming this fabric. It was labelled ‘ex Prada stock italian wool’ in the shop. I’m not sure if and of that description is true! There is definitely something not wool mixed in there, as it doesn’t make me itch like pure wool does. It’s sort of a loose weave check, very bobbly and fuzzy, so the fabric is thick but not dense. I have a feeling that heat will upset it. Any tips on whether I should steam it or leave it alone to treat it? And is there any way of pressing it on a very low heat?
