General Product Information
Are there specific washing instructions to avoid shrinkage?
Machine wash cold. No chlorine bleach. Tumble dry low. Remove promptly. Our fabrics are 100% cotton and all quilting cottons will shrink 3-5% on average when washed. We do not suggest prewashing our fabrics, especially when it is in a kit as these issues can occur before you put your pattern together.
Is your wool felted?
No, the wool is not felted.
Where is the fabric manufactured?
The majority of fabrics are produced in South Korea. All of our products are held to a quality standard as well as their facilities. We outsource our manufacturing and production to facilities that operate under strict ethical standards.
What are your overseas factory standards?
We are proud to outsource our manufacturing and production to facilities that operate under strict ethical standards; this is a subject we take very seriously!
Every year our production facilities undergo a rigorous manufacturing and production audit as well as an Ethical Standards Audit. These audits cover everything from child labor standards to living facilities. If you are interested, you can look up the details of these audits online (they are ICTI-CARE, BSCI, WRAP, SMETA and SA8000).
In addition, we further comply with the strict audit requirements of our licensee Crayola who bars certain countries with unethical standards from producing our fabrics. Some details of these guidelines include not employing any underage children, ensuring employees have a safe and healthy workplace in compliance with all applicable laws, making sure that all employment is voluntary and that all applicable wage and hours laws are followed (including overtime pay, maximum hours, etc.).
We also ensure that the hiring process is free of discrimination on the grounds of race, gender, religion, disability, or sexual preference and that all environmental laws, regulations, and industry standards are followed.
