I bought this cute little top a few days ago,( needed something red) it is a knit fabric, quite comfy.
Then I washed it.........didn't think to look at the label.........it shrunk about 6 inches or more! Yes 100% Rayon.
I have always hated Rayon, it wrinkles, and shrinks likes crazy. Luckily, I noticed before I put it in the dryer. I got it wet again, and stretched it back into shape. It takes alot of muscle to pull at both ends of the fabric but it works. Of course being a knit this is alot easier to stretch than a woven fabric.
While you are out shopping you will notice these days, most ladies t-shirts & knit dresses are made of this new slinky kind of knit. Some manufacturers are calling it Modal, but it is Rayon.....it is cheap man made fabric. I hate the way it clings to all the wrong places.
What happened to good old 100% cotton for a t-shirt!
