    Thanks very much for the feedback.
    No need to shrink! There are many ways to cuff the hose to shorten the length. I do a half cuff first, then fold over the full cuff. It makes for a fuller nicer cuff and proper length as well.

    Thanks Manu, I have them completely doubled over already, but can see that by just a little adjustment I can drop the length another inch without shrinking, so I'll desist from that method for now.
