Imagine flats cut odd?

I ordered two packs of 6 Imagine flats for DS due in 4 weeks...They were fine until I washed them. When I tried to fold them the cut is nowhere near square. When I fold them half the sides don't match up by over an inch. Is this normal? I have always made my own flats, so this is the first time I have had to buy them.

Unfortunately that's normal. They also shrink quite a bit, I've found since they're bamboo.

I now use them for pad folding and use my square flats for snappying.

If they're just rectangle, that's normal. My GMD are the only truly square flats we have.

If they're really off shape, then it could be a production issue, and you could request a credit.
