100% COTTON THAT LOOKS LIKE SUEDE!
Made in Minnesota, woman-owned and operated since the late '80s, Cherrywood has grown to be a leader in the hand-dyed fabric business. Cherrywood has perfected the rich, suede look of this gorgeous fabric. Cherrywood can be used in quilts, garments, home decorating, and anywhere else you want a solid color that doesn't just lay flat.
We encourage you to prewash all of your Cherrywood in a full load of WARM or COLD water with 2 teaspoons of Synthrapol. If you see a large amount of color in the rinse water, a second wash may be necessary. Synthrapol keeps those released dyes from reattaching onto other fabrics. If you have a front-loading machine, you may need to wash more times or use a laundry tub. Similar colors may be washed together as long as you use Synthrapol, but is wise to make keep very dark colors separate from very light colors while prewashing. Super dark colors may be washed in NOT water if there are concerns (this will flush out extra dye quicker). We have tested Color Catcher Sheets by Shout: they work well but may leave a lint residue on the fabric. There is no harm in using both products at once.
