Shrinkage of the fabric – the percentage of fabric shrinkage after washing the fabric or fabric.
When the hotel supplies buyers purchase the bedding sets for their hotel, they always provide the size of bedding sets to manufacturer according their bed size. So the sizes of their bedding sets they receive are customized according to their requirement. But they are confused that after washing, the bedding sets come smaller.
That is because textiles have shrinkage generally, the first three washes, the bedding sets will shrink, after washing three times, the size of the bedding will be shaped. Cotton bedding sets can shrink to about 95%, some high-density bedding sets can even reach 92%, and polyester-cotton shrinkage may be 97%.
Therefore, we have to make sure whether that is the size before shrinking or after shrinking with suppliers before producing. That is why the manufacturer will tell you the after shrinking size is allowed to 10% error, everybody just can make sure the shrinkage of cotton bedding sets is about 95% buy can not confirm the specific shrinking size.
