All natural fiber knits will shrink further. Percent shrinkage has been tested in a controlled lab. It may vary under different wash/dry conditions and from batch to batch.

Important Note about UPF Ratings:
Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) indicates how much UV radiation (both UVB and UVA) a fabric allows to reach your skin. For example, a UPF 50 fabric blocks 98 % of the sun’s rays and allows 2% (1/50th) to penetrate, thus reducing your exposure risk significantly. A UPF 30 fabric blocks 97% of UV rays and allows roughly 3% of UV transmission. UPF 15 indicates that the fabric blocks roughly 93% of UV rays and allows about 7% of available UV radiation to pass through.
UPF 10 to 30 = Fair Protection
UPF 30 to 50 = Good Protection
UPS 50+ = Excellent Protection

An Important Note about Potential Impurities in Wool Fibers from Chargeurs Wool USA:
"Some of the new wool fabrics may contain impurities in the form of orange fibers and black hair. The orange color is from the polypropylene that can be present as a result of the hay bale ties that farmers use to tie up the wool fibers. The Black hair in domestic wool is common in all US wools and ability to cut these out is limited. Unfortunately all the above are features of the domestic wool clip and can be found in wools of all origins. We are taking care to ensure future lots have as little of the impurities."
