Hi!

Newbie chiming in here. I have knitted and washed several washcloths from I Love This Cotton. No appreciable shrink, and very little fading. It's my favorite cotton yarn! I'm knitting a baby sweater with it now...

Hope this is of some help in addition to the input of the others.

Happy knitting!
