I bought some chambray online awhile back. I pulled it out and washed it in anticipation of the new Colette pattern I wanted to use it for. However, after about 5 washings, it is still rough. It's rough enough that it would not be comfortable to wear at all. I wouldn't want it against my skin or honestly even as a lined garment.
Is there anyway to soften it up more or do I just chalk it up to a bad purchase and move on?
Chambray to me should be soft like butter I guess. This is not at all.
