I have a Nike ACG jacket that is a little too big and was thinking about trying to shrink it. I can't find an exact picture of it online but it's a full-zip jacket that has a smooth fabric on the outside and blocked fleece on the inside
(similar to the insides of these: )
^^ That's not my jacket, just an example of what the fleece inside looks like. The outside is heaver than the above jackets.
Anyways, I was thinking about washing/drying my jacket to see if I can shrink it ever so slightly. I really like it but I hardly ever wear it because it's just too big.
The outer fabric is 60% polyester, 25% acrylic, and 6% wool. The inside fleece is 100% polyester, and the little stretchy side panels are 78% polyester and 22% polybutylene.
The care instructions say dry clean only. Would it be totally dumb to try and wash this sucker to get it to shrink up? If it's worth a shot, how should I do it? Hot wash and regular heat dry? Warm wash, tumble dry low? Just dry it, standing by the dryer the entire time so I can check it every 2 minutes so it doesn't shrink too small?
What'd ya'll think?
