    I was just wondering, do all clothes tighten and become smaller when you put it in the washing machine EVEN if you follow the correct 'CARE' instructions on the tag?

    Depends on the material. Best way to minimize shrinkage is cold water and hang dry.

    It is a pullover hoodie made from blended cotton fleece and polyester, will it shrink in the wash?
