    every time i wash my scrims and micro's they always feel hard and almost like wax'y!
    i wash them on a cold wash with no powder liquid etc just on theyre own then put them on the maiden to dry out but they always feel crispy and hard!, would it be worth putting softener in with them?

    Cheers guys I'll try a hot wash next time!
    I find they loosen up if I wrestle with them for a few mins
