New to sewing
« on: November 03, 2008, 09:15:47 PM »
I just bought 2 yards of fleece (I'm getting more next week.  :BlueDumboSmile:) So far, I made one Christmas bed from it. XD But I have a question. This fleece wasn't labeld "polar fleece", so would this fleece fray in the wash? And is there a way to tell?

I'm certainly no expert, but I used non-polar fleece, and it didn't fray when I washed it. If you are worried, can you snip a little piece off and wash it with your clothes? Then you can see if the little piece frays before you wash the rest.
