Chinese Carp Quilt kit
The indigo fabric has been dyed in natural indigo and initially this dye will come off on hands and clothing. It is therefore important to wash this fabric until the water runs clear before using it in a cool wash, to stabilise the colour.
It is recommended that all the fabric in the kit is washed prior to use to prevent any colour running or shrinking.
