I decided to wash this fabric this evening. DH is working late and I have time on my hand to do some sewing related things. I cut a small square of this fabric yesterday and hand washed it and let it dry. It did really well with no shrinkage. I think the washing will get rid of all the loose fuzzy material. They were all over me when I pulled out this fabric to plan the layout of the fabric.
I really need to use of some of my fabric stash and this will get some wear during the cool February and March days, possibly into April.
