I noticed the pique stuff now says it's pre-washed for stability. Is this a new thing? I had a bad experience with shrinkage before, but I would give some of their pique stuff another shot if they've improved that issue
The pre-washing is new yes, but do note they still say shrinkage up to 2% may occur. Then again, from my experience, all pique fabrics shrink up a bit and eases out again with wear. It can also be stretched gently out of the washer. Stoffas is definitely different, I don't find as much leeway in terms of stretching post wash, but the majority of the circumference shrinkage I had went away with ironing. The length not quite as much.
