This tablecloth is beautiful and well made. It did shrink a LOT in the wash, though it stretched out some with a steam iron. I actually made it into a woven baby wrap (for the fellow babywearing shoppers out there), and its a dead ringer for a purpose-made wrap. It measures as a short 3. It softens up beautifully after a bit of breaking in. It has a few more weaver's knots than a Didy, but you can't beat the price!
