Life cycle of disana soakers?

Hi!

Once they felt, do they keep shrinking? or is there an end to the shrinkage with normal use? how long have yours lasted and do you use them once in a while or daily?

They shouldn't keep shrinking if u don't keep felting them... Wash them in cold with minimal agitation and they shouldn't shrink anymore

wearing a soaker doesn't felt it. Washing on warm/hot with agitation felts wool.
