The correct way to dry textiles varies greatly. For textiles such as velvet, corduroy, terry cloth and similar, tumble drying is a good option. This will make the fibres rise and the textile will look great again. If a garment doesn't tolerate tumble drying, hang-dry it instead. If you want to minimise shrinkage and other dimensional changes, it’s a good idea to stretch the garment before drying. Follow the washing instructions if you want to check exactly what the textiles can withstand.
