Questions about fabric washing...please help

Does anybody ever wash flannel before making a diaper? What about fleece or hemp?

Re: Questions about fabric washing

I don't make diapers (i make wipes) but I always wash all my fabric before sewing. I wash once on cold and once on hot. when I started out I didn't wash on hot and I had a mama PM me saying the wipes shrunk up kinda funny, so I always wash on hot now first. I think you should because of the shrinkage factor. if it is good quality flannel the fabric shouldn't look much different after you wash it, just a little pilly.
