Tips for working with Knits
-Always wash & dry your knit fabrics BEFORE beginning a project. By nature, knits shrink a lot more than woven fabrics.
-Always sew with a ballpoint needle Because knit fabrics are made with yarns and not threads, the regular universal needles will slash right through those yarns and cause unsightly holes and runs. A ballpoint needle has a slightly rounded tip that separates the yarns as it penetrates the fabric.
-Just go for it - you can get away with a lot with Knits than cotton fabrics - they are a lot more forgiving.
Warm wash- Do not dry clean- tumble dry medium - warm iron
