Bias Tape



Bias Tape
Do you need to preshrink Wrights Bias Tape?

I’m doing a quick project and am about to finish. However, googling “Wrights pre shrink”, I’m finding things like “no need to preshrink”, but others saying to do so.

I don’t want to screw this project up. Does anyone recommend anything?

Because the tape is on the bias, there’s a lot of stretch built in – you should be fine. I’ve used bias tape dozens of times without pre-shrinking and I’ve never had problems (I’m a quilter who regularly pre-washes fabric, though).
If you prefer to be absolutely safe, you can unwind it from the card, lay it flat loosely on your ironing board, then run your steam iron slowly above the tape without touching, so it steams the tape. Leave it alone until it dries completely, then use as usual. (This method is used for pre-shrinking some kinds of interfacing, and can also be used for wools.)
Good luck!
