    Bobafettish & Rogue Studios Fabric Wash Question?

    Has anyone washed that fabric yet? I already have my vest sewn together. Now I would like to wash it for the first time to get rid of the stiffness of the vest. Is this fabric ok to wash in normal cycle?

    Thanks guys.

    I have not but I believe it BF said you could wash it normally but I would try it by itself in cold water first.
    And also it Rouge Studios, Squadron is the X-Wing fleet.

    I have not washed mine yet. I don't think hand washing it would do any harm to it as it's real use involves it being machined washed. I just would let it air dry as a dryer may cause it to shrink.

    I believe that Brak's has washed his before, so maybe he could answer this question for you. I can tell you that you do NOT want to get bleach on it unless you want it to turn pink.

    I know this may come a little late, but it would've been better to wash the material a few times BEFORE sewing it together. Most of the shrinking will occur in the first few washings.

    If you've already sewn it, cold water and hanger-dry are your best options.
