I’ve got to work this Saturday so I’ve got Friday off, and there’s nothing like an empty house to make this girl feel domestic!
I’ve got my burgundy linen in the wash right this second. As the lovely proprietrix of Silk Road recommended, I staystitched the edges before washing.
This got me thinking… Since I’m in a very hot and dry part of the country, we don’t use a drier but instead hang our laundry outside to dry. I always wondered if fraying would be as much of a problem since we don’t use a mechanical dryer? I also started wondering how line drying would affect a fabric… In particular, how worried should I be about distortion and what should I do about it? Should I clip it from the selvedge to minimize it? I’ve no idea?
This deserves further research…
