    that's very odd. i have used about a bazillion yards of the blue swirly in the past and never had a problem.

    i'm not questioning your post. just remarking on the strange turn of events.

    i washed several Northcotts this afternoon. they came out beautifully.

    i guess the fabric gremlins have been busy in many factories lately.

    criminitly! if i wanted to gamble like this, i'd fly to vegas! :shock:

    The pink was the worst of the three and my sink was pink! The blue wasn't as bad but the dragon fabric turned the water black. I haven't had any problems with WM fabric before this. I will still buy Walmart fabric but will wash it seprate.

    Ive used the pink and some aqua of the same fabric alot, ive never had a major bleeding issue... all fabrics regardless of where i get them do some, and is a major reason for prewashing ALL fabrics. (expecially in the red family)
    Im guessing maybe a bad batch. It happens
