Question I need help making hemp flats

Hi! I just got 4 yards of hemp/cotton jersey, it's a 27" tube. I'm going to make flats with it, but before I chop it up I need some pointers. I'm hoping to squeeze as many as possible out of it.

1. Do I wash the material before or after I cut and hem?

2. What size should I cut them to since hemp shrinks so much?

3. Does jersey need to be hemmed, or should I just do a zig zag stitch (no serger here)?

Thanks!
