Can I put Pima Cotton in the dryer?

We Are Knitters -

Dryers are very useful, but they are the number one enemy of natural fibers such as wool and cotton.

Dryers use high heat and motion to dry clothes, so because cotton and wool are made from natural fibers, they can be damaged in a way that synthetic fibers cannot.

Putting them in the dryer can shrink your garments and cause them to pill, unlike some cotton and synthetic blends that are designed to withstand the heat of the dryer.

If you want to keep your cotton forever, we recommend that you dry it on a flat surface (for example, a table) to avoid stretching it out of shape.
