    Hi

    I know you shouldn't machine dry a Gi but I did it by accident (new washer dryer, couldnt figure out how to use it). The collar on the Gi is very stiff and feels like the elastic on the inside has shrunk. Is there any way of getting it back to normal ?, its a regular Koral Gi btw.

    Thanks in advance

    I have had two Koral gis for about 2 years each. Each has been machine washed AND dried dozens and dozens of times with no problems at all.

    my team mate did the same thing and the collar was all short and bunched up and stuff

    you have messed up your gi-- buy a new one, I dont think theres anything you can do unless someone whos smaller than you wants to buy a shrunk gi with the collars all messed up

    Happens with patches that aren't pre shrunk as well. I jacked two nice mundial gi's by drying them.

    A gi should be able to be dried in a drier.
