    Not sure how long I should go between washings on my new sevens, but how do I minimize the amount of shrinking? The pair I have are the very lightweight ones so I would hate to make them any stiffer.

    Thanks.

    don't matter if they're not raw. they're gonna shrink a little bit even if you soak. just don't dry in dryer if you wanna minimize shrinkage.

    thanks for the info, i just got a new pair of 7's for christmas.

    is hang drying the best way to preserve the softness of the fabric as well?
