Happy Hempy's - am I supposed to boil them first?
 
Do they shrink over time? I have two larges I bought on here, used, and then I bought two large new ones. I prewashed the new ones and dried them in the dryer, but they seem bigger than the larges I bought used. Will they shrink up over time, or was I supposed to do something different to prep them?

thanks!

i wouldnt boil them, the elastic wouldnt take that too kindly and i dunno about whatever closure taking it nicely either....

i know hemp fleece does shrink a little more over time, too. not like tons more after its been washed a couple times, but a tad more. you should wash them a couple more times before use, soo if that does it? id expect up to a couple inches total.

im funny like this- if i have more than 1 of something tat shrinks i only wash one ad see what the difference is lol. its really `interesting... `but maybe its`just cause im a dork :laugh:

I've done that before, like take two new Carter's onesies or whatever and just wash one and then see how much it shrunk. lol

Mine shrunk quite a bit the first couple of washes. I think they barely fit before I washed so I probably should have sent them back right away but I thought maybe that was how they were supposed to fit and then I washed them and then the rise was too short after that. They probably will shrink some more with another wash and then start to stabilize.
