I am new to this list but have a question about the care of rayon fabric that I hope someone can answer.
I know that it us traditional to dryclean rayon but I am interested in whether anyone has washed solid colored rayon fabric. What was you experience with washing? Did the fabric become stretchy? Did it shrink a great deal? Was the color changed? Did it make sewing more difficult? Was the texture changed? How?
I have a piece of liliac rayon broadcloth (?) that I would really love to be able to wash when my dress is constructed.
Thanks for any help in this area. I seem to remember there was an article about it either in Threads or one of the other sewing magizines I receive but have been unable to locate the article.
