the shrinking is getting less dramatic each time, which is to be expected i guess.
on the stf superfuture thread some people were saying a long cold soak would shrink as much as a short hot soak but less indigo loss. but after the cold soak i wanted to get more shrinkage and did a hot soak the next day.
actually they didnt lose that much indigo, it only looks like it because i soaked them in a small sink that didnt have much water, if i would have soaked them in a full bathtub the water would have looked very light blue.
