  • it can.. but not typically by a lot, you have to be more careful of ruining the material if the dryer is set to high.

  • I believe polyester is synthetic and shouldn't shrink. Use a low setting.

  • I thought polyester shrang but I put the question to the test online and the answer came up that it doesn't. Pleasant surprise to me. I dont really like polyester that much next to cotton fabric.
