Do you suppose that if I were the get a cotton bath towel, fresh out of the spin cycle of the washer, so that it wasn’t soaking but it was plenty damp, and tossed it in the dryer with my five yards of 100% wool crepe, and dried it on low or medium, it might adequately pre-shrink the crepe? Or shrink it into submission?
Has anyone ever tried that? Or just spritzing the wool pretty thoroughly and drying it? I live in a tiny town, and I get alarmed blank looks when I take fabric to the dry cleaner and ask that it be pre-shrunk. I usually steam press this stuff myself at the ironing board, but there’s five yards of it at 60 inches wide. I might die at the ironing board before I finished. Or fill up my nice air conditioned house with humidity. And it’s too big to hang in the shower, although I could manoever that it necessary.
Does anyone have any personal favorite ways of preshrinking wool crepe, especially for when you are feeling totally slothful? Thanks in advance. If I decide to do the dryer thing, I will report back.
You can choose to be part of the solution, or part of the problem. Or like me, you can be an overachiever, and do both.
