Slipcovers

coversDear Andy –
I am buying some ecru colored cotton that was hand woven in Sardinia to have slipcovers made for two couches I have. Since I need to wash the slipcovers – have dog, he slobbers – I understand that I need to use fabric that is pre-washed. This fabric is not pre-washed and I considered doing it myself. Since I need several yards I have discarded that idea but have heard that there are places that will do it for you. I live in Katonah, NY – an hour from NYC. Do you know of places that will do it? The fabric comes 3 meters wide (3.25 yards) and I am purchasing 15 meters. Do you think it is enough for two small couches – 71 inches long?
Thank You.
Sandra

Dear Sandra: I don’t have any idea on how much fabric you will need to cover your furniture. Best to visit a local upholstery shop and ask them. As far as pre-washing the fabric, I have not heard of that either. Best to search the web and see if you can find a company that offers the service you want. Good Luck, Andy
