All dāram garments are made from pre-washed and pre-shrunk fabric. These processes ensure that the interlacing warp & weft yarn relaxes to its original length. This ensures that the degree of shrinkage that will occur while washing the garments themselves is minimised.
We offer our customers less than 2% shrinkage (both on length and chest) on all our garments.
Why do fabrics shrink?
In the pre-loom processes of warping and sizing and also on the loom, yarn is stretched and kept taut under tension. Yarns that are woven to form the fabric, when washed for the 1st time, will naturally shrink to its original length, thus causing the shrinkage that is experienced.
