Wash hemp fabric b/f or after making into inserts?

Y'all helped me decided what hemp to order from a co-op and it came in today! Yeah! Ready for some more inserts/doublers!!!

It would be so easy to wash it all together and start priming it, but would it be harder to sew after washed up?

Any experience?

Wash and Dry 3x (no soap required) and make sure to clean your lint filter OFTEN!

It's a pain and that's why I have mine professionally done now, lol.

If you son't pre-wash your items may come out wonky after they are washed.
hth!!

Wash it now. It'll shrink about 15%.
