Does Marino Wool tend to shrink after washing?
MICHAEL M After several washings using a conventional top loading washer there has been no signs of shrinkage. I have always line/air dried this wool product and cannot confirm wether these bottoms will stand up to a forced air dryer.
GERALD M i have not noticed my tops or bottoms shrinking and they have been washed several times.
SCOTT H Not if you follow the manufacturers laundering instructions.

I purchased this for my trek to Annapurna Base Camp last December. I washed it before leaving - using the instructions provided. I didn't see any shrinkage. Only thing is that I wished I had bought a lighter weight rather than mid-weight as trekking was making me sweat a lot. But these are great none-the-less and I plan to use it for my upcoming Kilimanjaro trip.
WALTER W I have used many merino base-layer products and several brands including Minus33.
I have machine washed all of them but only used air drying by rack to dry. With this method, there has been no shrinkage or change in fit.
PETER N As long as you follow the washing instructions you will not see any significant shrinkage. I have a season of skiing in mine and plan to buy more this year.
JOHN K Follow recommended washing instructions. You should have no problems with shrinking.
