Hi all,
I got two new jerseys' as a gift but they are both about one size too
big. Is there a way to shrink them by washing them on hot water and
putting them in the dryer would work? I know this will work with wool
jersey.
Cheers,
Rick in Tennesseee

I'd call Rick Moranis for advice.

Take them to a tailor. I had an XL cycling jacket that was cut for a fatty
master with a real gut problem. The tailor took it in and it's great.
Shouldn't cost too much.

Natural fibers will shrink: cotton, wool, linen, silk. Wash and dry in
a dryer. Synthetic fibers don't shrink nearly as well, if at all.

An alterations shop may be a better option.
