Hey denim cats
just wondering abouyt dry soaking my new Ande Whalls-
the denim is so stiff its starting to hurt me behind the knees!
what good is cold soaking, can i spin dry them in the machine afterwards, and will it soften my denim?
thanks for your help~

Wow! they must be super stiff if they're hurting you knees! :)

I dont know if AW's are startched. A soak would remove some of this and although they'll still feel stiff after they've dried they should soften up after a day or two wear.

My grifters have softened up quite a bit. I agree, they were uncomfortable behind the knees but it will go away. You will get some sweet honeycombs with the grifters as well. Mine are coming along nicely :D
