Frequently Asked Questions

Please click on the headings below to reveal the answer to the question.

A: Clothes shrink when they are washed or dry-cleaned so it is important to wash or dry-clean your clothes before they are altered. This way we can insure there are not any suprises and your clothes will fit properly.

Here are some of the natural and highly-processed natural fibers that shrink when laundered (washing and dry-cleaning):

  • silk
  • cotton
  • wool
  • linen
  • tencel
  • rayon
  • viscose
  • ramie
  • bamboo
  • hemp
  • angora
  • cashmere

Blends with any of the above fibers will shrink when laundered. Some blends with Lycra, Elastane or Spandex will shrink when laundered especially when subject to high heat. Nylon, mod-acrylic and other man-made fabrics may shrink when laundered. It is always wise to launder any garment before having it altered. That way the garment has done most of the shrinking it will do and there are no surprises when you continue to wash or dry clean the item. The list above is just a sample of the most common fibers in garments and is not a complete list by any means.
