Making a Tailor’s Ham
I’m thinking about making a Tailor’s ham. Does anyone know why a Tailor’s ham has wool on one half and cotton on the other half? Some say that the wool side is for lower temperature pressing and the cotton side is for higher temperature pressing. Why not make both sides from cotton?
The wool side absorbs the steam and feeds it to the reverse side so piece on ham is fully steamed even at a lower setting. Great for shaping sleeve caps or bust darts
