Due of its strength but delicate texture, calico natural medium-weight cotton is the material of choice for constructing prototype clothing. It is also frequently used to make bedding sets, duvet covers, and pillowcases. In the first wash, the cloth will shrink by up to 10% to 15%. We advise a wash temperature of between 30 and 40 degrees, as long as the first wash temperature is not exceeded, further shrinking should be at a minimum.
