Shrunk in the dryer

I bought two of these sweaters based off the stellar reviews. I was very happy with the product on arrival. The material quality feels very soft and the button detail on the sleeve is a really nice, classic touch. I usually wear a small size top so I ordered a small and they fit great (I'm 5'8" and 135 lbs). The red is a vibrant red, more orange tones than purple tones. The dark brown is a very rich brown. All around happy with my selections.

I typically wash new clothes before I wear them and since these are made of viscose and polyester I didn't think much of tossing them in the dryer after the wash. That's when I got a surprise - they shrunk! The red one shrunk more that the brown one, a couple inches in the sleeves and a couple inches shorter in the torso, now unwearable for me. The brown one shrunk less but still won't be wearable for me. I'll pass them on to a shorter friend. Disappointed, but I would still encourage someone to purchase this garment, just maybe hang dry or buy a size up.
