Bamboo Velour sewing question...

I want to wash it first to get out any shrinkage, but will it fray? Should I run a line around it will my machine?
TIA!!!

No, bamboo will not fray. I would recommend 2-3 hot wash / hot dry though. 1 wash won't be enough.

Agree with pp: I've never had it fray, but sometimes it will curl something awful, so I will add that it's important to pre-wash in one piece if possible, hth

Make sure to check your lint trap in your dryer a few times, too. It can shed fluff something awful.
