Soho Linen Cotton & other cotton fabrics

Shrinkage Up to 3% on the warp, and up to 2% on the weft

 

Note on natural fabrics: Natural fabrics may contain subtle imperfections such as slubbing and yarn variation; These are characteristic of fibres derived from seeds and plants.

Velvet
You want to ensure Velvet is cared for and the pile is protected. You can do this by using your hand to brush the pile if creases are developing and gently vacuum if dust is forming in the pile. You should spot clean by dabbing to remove marks and avoid rubbing. Use light steam to pop out creases, never iron Velvet because you will flatten the pile. Our Velvet is made from high quality polyester to provide the most durable and luxurious textile, we still recommend Dry Clean Only* for finished products.
Shrinkage Less than 2% on the warp and weft

*Note: I have machine washed velvet at home for my own projects (dog pillows etc) and it washes very well (colour & softness is not affected) but it does give the velvet a vintage feel with a more crushed appearance - which I personally love!
