Shrinking jersey?(4 posts)

Shrinking jersey?dave woof
Nov 5, 2002 7:47 PM
I bought two long sleeve jersies from somewhere online - both Santini XXL, (euro size, I'm a 42) anyway, one is a full two inches bigger than the other in the chest and waist. I'd like to 'shrink' the larger one by drying it super hot or something rather than sending it back.

It's 40% nylon and 60% Polyester :-)

Any suggestions or will this material shrink at all anyway?

Thanks

Dave Woof

btw one's a Lampre and the other Tacconi/Calderola

Good quality too
I think a trip through the dryer will shrink one, but....Scot_Gore

...what size it is coming out is a crap shoot.

I've had a jersey or two tossed into the dryer with other loads by mistake and they've gotten smaller in the process. Controling the amount of shrinkage would be difficult.

Good Luck

more likely to melt it...._rt_

I haven't had any luck shrinking jerseys in the dryer or otherwise (a constant issue for me as your polar opposite size: XS/XXS).

why not just send it back?
