Is this a thing, about washing them first?  Must admit I never have... (but then I'll pop my Cropredy one straight away at the festival, which I know some people think is Not The Done Thing).


Ive never washed a Tshirt before wearing it.
A Dress shirt yes, but not a Tshirt


I said that out loud to myself when I read it  Smiley  From many of the postings it seems we're in the minority though.


It might shrink before you have a chance to wear it Grin

I thought I was doing something wrong by not washing it beforehand. Glad I'm not the only one

I'm glad I raised the question on behalf of us non-pre-washers!

Mine arrived Saturday.... Two youth shirts for my great niece and nephew. I bought Nora a”we want our field back” shirt at my first Cropredy. She’s been sharing it with her brother since his arrival a few years later. It no longer fits her like a long dress.
They’ll enjoy having both the original and the postponed one.

Sorry to double post.....

Their dad will definitely wash it before letting them wear the new shirts.

FC official site is now taking pre-orders for another t-shirt - to support the Cropredy Crew, who are losing most of this year's income from festivals...

It means you never need to wash it.   Cheesy

No, it means that any shrinking and major colour bleeding will already have occurred.

When was the last time anybody got any colour bleed from a commercially available t-shirt?  Must be decades for me...but then again, I always wash everything at 30 degrees (see below).

I don't understand the shrinking point at all - if you wash anything too hot it can shrink at any time.

Hmmm.  If anybody wants a new definition of "first world problems" please refer them to this discussion   Wink Grin
