A very stupid ironing question

    I decided to go ahead with another Playdate “muslin” (thanks, Nicole, for your direction on the yoke). I’m making it out of a Lisette chambray (the tobacco color) that I picked up in the remnants bin at Joann’s while in the States. I washed and dried the fabric and today I went to iron it. I figured high setting since it’s cotton (right?)? But stuff was coming off the fabric onto my iron. After I cleaned the iron, I lowered the heat and it worked ok. I thought cotton always had to be ironed on high? Or am I off and is there something else in the Lisette chambray (I didn’t have access to the bolt to read what it was made of)?

    Lisette chambray is part poly, keeps it nice and in shape, I think, since it was originally shown for use in pants. It is very fluid though, should work for a playdate.

    Sounds like there is some polyester/rayon in the fabric which would explain it melting onto your iron. Yes, I would normally iron cotton on “cotton” or even on “linen” depending on how thick/wrinkled the material is. Hope someone can answer your query re. “makeup” of fabric who knows more abt Lisette fabric than I do.

    Sometimes you can look up the material online to get the content/washing instructions that are on the bolt end. Is this your material: http://www.joann.com/lisette-collection-fabric-blue-chambray/zprd_10683480a/?_requestid=321535

    Thanks Pippi – I did look it up but I guess I typed “tobacco” into the search so it gave me no matches. This is the same stuff, just a different color.

    I do remember that the chambray had a wee bit of polyester in it.

    Violeta is right.

    PS My pleasure (re yoke)
