Will a shirt with 60% cotton and 40% polyester shrink when I first wash/dry it?

Good brands of clothing are less apt to shrink, in my experience. Also, a small amount of rayon is less apt to be a problem. But I'm still a little suspicious of rayon.

It sounds from your comments like modal doesn't shrink with a cold water wash but rayon might shrink a little in a cold water wash.

Polyester almost has no significant shrinkage in water at moderate temperatures and the cotton component of the fabric has been very likely chemically treated with shrinkproof finishes. Thus, the answer is: the sweater does not shrink when washed and dried.
If, by 60% cotton and 40% khaki, you mean the balance is polyester, you can try to wash (or rather soak, no need for soap) and dry at the hottest temperature available on your dryer as said previously but, if it doesn’t work, it doesn’t necessarily means it has been pre-shrunk (if it’s the case, you are out of luck).

Mar 28,  · Do the 60/40 poly blends shrink very much? I just took in a pair of new LC in waterfall (60/40 cotton-poly blend) to get hemmed, and have a feeling that they may be a bit longer than I want. Does anyone know if boiling works to shrink this poly blend fabric?
