WOTA i-cord shrinkage

Does an I cord made with WOTA shrink to about half the length you knit it? I want to make sure I make my purse strap long enough .

My 30 inch I-cord is now 26 in so they don’t shrink all that much, at least for me. I think it has to do with the density of the I-cord.

Thank you , thank you … Jan. That is just what I needed to know!

You’re welcome. I used WOTA yarn so I don’t know if yarn type makes a difference in this situation, but from what I’ve read denser knitting shrinks up less because there is less friction to cause the felting.
