does it shrink with washing?
ZOLTAN A N
All wool items tend to shrink a bit. This one does as well. How intensely the legging shrinks it depends of how carefully you will follow washing instructions, I guess. I would only use fine washing liquid like Perwoll and low temperature/ nearly cold hand wash program in washing machines, etc. Don???t machine dry heating!
In use the size will expand again on your feet as you move.
My standard XL works well on my muscular but shorter construction. The leggings are a bit long for my body structure (one size fits no one?). Slight shrinkage does not bother me. Just the opposite: a bit shorter is an advantage today.
The material is of excellent quality: VERY comfortable on skin (I hated everything wool in my youth but this one is a revolutionary different stuff today). Works well up to near zero temperatures and in strong winds. I would not recommend for running if you are sweating.
No. I've washed these base layers about 6 times so far and they have not shrunk at all.
Washed warm water, hung on line to dry no shrinkage.
It won't shrink if you will follow laundry label instructions (gentle laundry, no dryer).
I have used it a few times and wash it carefully. So far, so good. No shrinkage to report, and I feel confident it gives a bit more insulation than a similar product in polyester. I was concerned it would itch or irritate my skin. No problem. It feels good and has performed well.
Have run through maybe 4 cycles only. Does not shrink that I've noticed. Recommended that you turn them inside out before washing. I have also dried these in a dryer with no ill effects. Satisfied with the product.
I have only washed two times and no shrinking yet
My bottoms and tops have been washed several times and they have not shrunk. I use cold water and a wool friendly detergant. But I do put them in the dryer on low. As with any wool it would be better to let them air dry.
No, they do not shrink with washing.
I have washed these in cold water and gentle cycle using regular detergent. I layed them out to dry instead of the dryer and have had no problem.
I have washed mine several times in COLD water and hang to dry. Mine have not shrunk at all. I don't know if they would shrink if washed in hot water and put in a clothes dryer???
They do not, they hold their original size. I wear mine on daily basis for work and they will stretch a little while you wear them but they go right back to the original size after washing. I have tried several kinds of thermal wear and this is by far the most comfortable and best performing I have ever used. I would recommend these to anyone.
after wearing a few times it will stretch out a little bit. WHen you wash them they shrink back to original size.
I haven't noticed shrinkage from washing this product. However, I hang this product to dry.
