    Smartwool Sizing and Shrinkage?

    How true to size do Smartwool shirts run? I would normally order a medium with their size charts but I'm concerned about shrinkage.

    I have experienced zero shrinkage of smartwool products. I wash them all ways. Machine wash/dry. Hand wash/dry. Combos of both.
    Higher ground for the apocalypse!

    +1 Have washed in both cold and warm setting and dried in dryer with no problems, same with items from Ibex.

    Thanks for the responses. I guess I'll pass on all that smartwool on ebay. It's all men's large and I'm medium in their sizes. No discounted smartwool for me today.
