    How to Sew PUL
    • no need to pre-wash, it will not shrink

    • cut edges can be left unfinished as it will not unravel or fray

    • please, no pins as these create holes--try Wonder Clips (see below)
      -hair clips or binder clips may also work

    • for sewing machine needle use a universal or ball point needle--not a sharp needle as these make
      sharp holes in the fabric--you want a rounded tip needle--
      uses a small diameter needle--70/11, 75/11 or 80/12

    • use 100% polyester thread to prevent wicking

    • sew with laminate side down whenever possible as it may stick to your presser foot--if you must sew with the laminate side up, use a teflon foot or walking foot--sometimes a thin piece of paper may work

    Absorbent Fabric

    Hemp Fleece Fabric

    55% Hemp 45% Certified Organic Cotton

    Hemp Fleece fabric is slightly stretchy and extremely absorbent.

    This knit fabric is a light creamy natural colour.

    Excellent for diapers and soakers.

    56" wide -- comes as a 28" wide tube of fabric with both sides connected,  Cut open along one side if you need a flat width.

    Machine wash warm water and tumble dry.

    Can be used fleecy side out although it will produce more dryer lint.  Inserts and boosters are typically sewn smooth sides out.

    Be sure to pre-wash as it will shrink--one yard will shrink to approx. 32" or adjust your pattern--e.g. for a soaker multiply the pattern length by 1.12 to sew
    without prewashing the fabric.

    There may be some flaws in the fabric as this is the way that it comes.
