Rated 4 out of 5 by Manu Shrinks quite a lot
This fabric looks and feels really lovely, but like others have mentioned it does shrink quite a lot. I always prewash fabrics on a gentle cycle at 40* celsius (I live in Switzerland and don't know what the settings on american washing machines are), tumble dry on a low setting and it did shrink about 7% in all directions.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Longtimesewer Could not be straightened
I ordered this fabric because it was recommended in a "Cozy Quick Blankie". This fabric shrank like others have said, but also I could not get it straightened. Very frustrating for such an expensive fabric.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Pampered This shrinks like crazy
I love the feel and look of this cotton sherpa, but I ordered 2 yards so I could make two items each needing 7/8 yard of fabric. After it shrank I could only get one item cut, but I had to go down a size to get the other from the fabric. I know cotton can shrink but that is a lot of shrinkage.

Rated 3 out of 5 by flex1102 Shrinks A LOT
I loved this so much when I first got it, so soft and warm. I did however wash as dry it per the directions and it shrank soooo much. I might try this fabric again and see how laying flat to dry works.

This is fabulous for lining baby stroller/car seat blankets. A warning, though - suggest you prewash since it does shrink quite a bit and takes a while to dry.
Otherwise, so soft and warm.
