    100% cotton will surely shrink in hot water and a hot dryer, just like they say; but a sweater should be dried flat, not in a machine. Check the size after washing before putting it in a hot dryer. Good luck!

    These are all things that are very hard to spot when purchasing online. What makes it harder is that most sellers will use a photo of an actual authentic jersey to fool you.

    Wash them in soapy hot water and rinse twice then put them in the dryer on hot heat. This will definately shrink them. I did it accidently and it really shrunk the jeans and sweater.
