Most fabrics can actually be washed, the question is what happens afterwards: the main concern is shrinkage or wrinkling. Technically, a fabric can be designated as washable if it is does not shrink more than 3% when subject to the designated laundry programme. However, at Loome we recommend that when measuring for washable fabrics you work to about 5% as the possible shrinkage factor.
If you are using a washable fabric to make up loose covers remember that any zips also need to be washable and, ideally, pre-washed before the covers are made up.
All Loome washable fabrics can only be washed at a maximum of 30 degrees centigrade, and must not be tumble dried or dried by exposure to any direct heat source (e.g. hanging over a radiator or a tumble dryer).
Washable fabrics make a great choice if you have children or pets, as they are much easier to maintain.
